The name of the heading is now inserted as a cross-reference so that if you change the name of your heading in the document, the name will be updated here as well. In order to help readers that read the report on paper it’s good to add the page number as well. Add the text, “on page” and then click “Cross-reference” again, change the “Insert reference to” to page number. Again, select the heading you want to refer to.
