In the Fields dialog, in the Cross-references tab (Insert->Cross-reference), one must select what one wishes to reference, eg a bookmark, a heading, a figure, a table or something else.
When working on a large document, there will be different default ways that the user will want to refer to these things, eg for a figure you might want "Category and Number" to reference "Figure 1", but for a bookmark you might want "Chapter" in order to reference "§2.2". For an equation, you might want something else again.
It would be ideal if this dialog were able to remember the recent user preference for cross-references of the different types. So that when I insert a Figure reference, I don't need to click "Category and Number" every time.
Note: as of 5.2.3, LO is already quite a bit smarter than it used to be: it remembers the previous reference "type" and the previous "insert reference to". What is suggested here is a small additional refinement.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert reference to a figure (Category and Name)
2. Insert a reference to a bookmark (Chapter)
3. Insert reference to another figure (Category and Name)
At step 3, it is necessary to manually select 'Category and Name' again.
If the "Insert reference to" box could remember what kind of reference was last used for each reference type, then it would save additional clicks.

Sounds fairly reasonable. I don't think anyone would hurt their feelings, if the behaviour was changed. NEW.
Is this a duplicate of 92688?
Ah, good catch. That's what I get for being too lazy to search for dupes..
