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.
|To move both the object and the caption, drag the frame that contains these items. To update the caption numbering after you move the frame, press F9.|
To define a caption proceed as follows:
- Select the item that you want to add a caption to.
- Choose Insert - Caption.
- Select the options that you want, and then click OK. If you want, you can also enter different text in the Category box, for example
|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.
|LibreOffice can automatically add a caption when you insert an object, graphic, frame, or table. Choose Tools - Options - LibreOffice Writer - AutoCaption.|
