Furthermore, it should be possible to reference the figure numbers in
other places of the notebook, also with automatic updating of changed
figure numbers.

the text cell, select the text cell, change the cell type with alt-0 +
Figure, insert in the same cell in the line below the drawing an
automatic numbering object (menu item Insert->Automatic Numbering,
Counter type "Figure", check box "This counter object"). A zero (0) is
inserted always instead of 1, 2, 3 for different drawings in different
