Using Captions

In text documents, you can add continuously numbered captions to graphics, tables, frames, and drawing objects.

You can edit the text and the number ranges for different types of captions.

When you add a caption to a picture or to an object, the object and the caption text are placed together in a new frame. When you add a caption to a table, the caption text is inserted as a paragraph next to the table. When you add a caption to a frame, the caption text is added to the text inside the frame, either before or after the existing text.

You can edit caption text directly in the document.

A caption is formatted with the paragraph style that matches the name of the caption category. For example, if you insert a "Table" caption, the "Table" paragraph style is applied to the caption text.
