In FIG. 1, object A is omitted for the sake of brevity. ... In FIG. 10, as in/with FIG. 1, object A is omitted for the sake of brevity.

I would like to know which of as in/with is correct in the sentence above I created, although you may think the phrase "as in/with FIG. 1" is redundant and unnecessary. The result of google search I made indicates both are used almost equally.

    I'm not answering this, but I would simply say in fig 10, like in Fig 1. – Jan Feb 28 '20 at 8:38

Asking whether to use "as in" or "as with" is exactly the same as asking whether you should use "in" or "with".

In documentation, a numbered 'figure' is normally a picture or a diagram. So, would you say that something is in a picture, or with a picture?

You would say that something was "in" a picture.

So, you should say "as in FIG. 1"
