updating references is time consuming and prone to error. VCmaster provides the possibility of setting bookmarks and referring to these
from another position.
To do so, the position to be referenced must first be defined, by inserting a bookmark at
the current cursor position.
It can be referenced to a directory (for example an image directory) and the number of the entry can be taken over in the cross-reference (see
