The Macro "Insert reference" (bound to Shft-Cmd-R by default, I  
believe) will search through all the files in the same directory for  
all \label commands. It doesn't do that by default; you've got to  
edit it and change the value of "property only_scan_current_file : "  
from true to false. by using the Macro Editor. Also, if the top of  
the file has "-- Applescript Direct" remove the "Direct" since a  
dialog box is produced. Remember, the files all have to be in the  
same directory for this macro to work.

Good Luck,
