Figure and table counters

The <%HMFIGURECOUNTER%> and <%HMTABLECOUNTER%> variables are special, predefined counter variables for numbering images (figures) and tables. They can be referenced in links and text like "See Fig. X" or "See table Y", provided the references are just a few pages away from the place where the figure or table are located.

You can use as many figure and table counters as you need by adding a number to the variable names. You can also reset the values of your figure and table counters at any point in your project.
