# [NTG-context] placenamedformula in placelist (MKII vs MKIV/LMTX)

Wed Mar 17 23:05:28 CET 2021

```Hi,

Or would it be possible to just add a "list=" option to placeformula
similar to placefigure? (although that might conflict with the combination
of "title=")

All I am really after is to label or name numbered formulas in the
placelist.
