The Caption dialog box opens. The default caption label is “Figure”, followed by an automatic number. You can give the caption a descriptive name as well.
Right-click an image and select Caption.
Enter a caption for the figure.
You could also adjust the position of the label by clicking the Position list arrow and selecting another option. By default, captions will appear below figures.
A caption is added below the image.
Captions added this way will automatically number themselves, in order, from the start of the document. If you add a new caption to an earlier figure, each caption after is automatically renumbered.
Since caption numbers can change, create references to captions in your document by clicking the Cross-reference button on the References tab and selecting the caption. This way, the reference in the text will automatically change when the caption number does.
You can add a caption to a table in the same way that you can add a caption to a figure. If you have multiple types of captions in a document, you may also want to customize the numbering style so they don’t all look the same.
Select a table.
Click the Insert Caption button.
Click the Label list arrow.
The caption label changes to Table. This also restarts the numbering to only include table captions and changes the position of the caption as well.
Click the Numbering button.
Click the Format list arrow and select a new numbering format.
You can order captions with numbers, letters, or roman numerals.
The numbering format is applied.
Enter a caption for the table.
The table caption is added above the table and will use the specified numbering format.
