thank you for your answer

It would work (and if I don't find another solution, I will end by doing this).
however, It would mean that I would have to place a label each time I
comment the figures. I have tens of figures and I comment each of them
between 3 and 6 time.
As a consequece, there is a high probabilty of forgetting a reference.
