Hi,

Are you allowed to keep the value of the counter as in

\newcounter{savectr}
\newcommand{\savectr}[1]{\setcounter{savectr}{\value{#1}}}
\newcommand{\backctr}[1]{\setcounter{#1}{\value{savectr}}}
...
\begin{document}
\begin{enumerate}
\item\label{should:1}
This is~\ref{should:1}
\savectr{enumi}
\end{enumerate}
...
\begin{enumerate}
\backctr{enumi}
\item\label{should:2}
This is~\ref{should:2}
\savectr{enumi}
\end{enumerate}
...

so that you have to compile it only twice to get the references right?

Cheers,

Nestor Aguilera
