# [NTG-context] \setupcaptions question

```I want to use `numberstopper' for figure caption customization like so:

\setupcaptions[numberstopper={:}]

this works fine for the caption itself (i.e. I get, e.g. "Figure 1:
caption text") _but_
references to the figure via a defined label such as [fig:example]
in the body text do include the numberstopper, too, which is highly
undesirable in my view, since, e.g.,

"... see Figure 1: for an example. ..."

"... see Figure 1 for an example. ..."

i.e. the numberstopper should be omitted (at least optionally) when
referencing.

question: how can this be achieved?

thx/j
