> all my figures and tables are named/numbered after my chapter (1.2,  
> 1.3, ....2.1, 2.2....), but I would like to have a continuous numbering like  
> fig. 1 for the first figure in my document, fig. 2 for the second  
> (unimportant in which chapter they appear). 
> and refering to them like  
> ...blabla as seen in \ref{fig:myfirstfigure}. 
> \begin{...} 
> ... 
> \label{fig:myfirstfigure} 
> .. 
> \end... 
> I searched the web, but without success yet. I would greatly appreciate any  
> hints for sites or commands.
