Is there a way to number and reference equations in Logseq? Thanks!

Could you describe the desired functionality?

- Where are the equations?
- What is the effect of referencing them?
- Have you seen it in some other software?

A visual clue may also help.

Hi, thanks for the reply.

I was just thinking of how you can label equations in LaTeX, and then reference them. This is very standard in LaTeX, see for instance: How to include and reference equations - Overleaf, Online LaTeX Editor.

I was wondering if something similar would make sense for Logseq?

Though on second thought, a similar functionality could come from referencing *blocks* containing the equations. Has this been discussed before (in relation to mathematical equations)?

- Equations are indeed like blocks:
- Logseq’s central unit is the block. A block can:
- be referenced by any other block
- be embeded inside any other block

- You can get the same flexibility for equations, if you express each equation at the level of a block.

- Logseq’s central unit is the block. A block can:
- Blocks have unique ids.
- They can serve as numbers.
- They are not very practical.

- There is a feature request for Block reference to allow ((page-name#block-ref-name)) not just UUID

- They can serve as numbers.
