When opening an existing document edited with German language settings including captions of figures using the added category "figure" instead of "Schaubild" the existing entries in the list for cross references vanish when inserting a new caption, where I was not able to choose the previously added category "figure". Numbers start beginning from 1 again.
Workaround: changing language settings of the libre office GUI to English.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open existing Document which had no problems with adding captions and cross references before (German as GUI language)
2. insert figure and caption
3. entries vanish
3. you should be able to choose "figure" as before reopening the document counting up from the last entry in the list (e.g. "Figure 7: [caption text]" instead of "Figure 1: [caption text]" and you should be able to select from a list of all captions when adding new cross-references to the document
