Description maxkennedy 2003-06-19 05:41:38 UTC
Add a caption for a picture in Writer
ie: Created new text file, Insert - graphics - from file,
added picture to document, right click on picture and choose caption
----
Problems:

Problem 1: Writer adds Illustration 1, Illustration 2, etc, to
caption automatically without giving user option to not do
that.  You have to go back in document and manual erase what
Writer added to your caption.

In example, you make the caption "Test", and Writer adds the
caption to document "Illustration 1 Test".  

Expected Result: You add caption "Test" and you get caption "Test"

Actual Result: You add caption "Test" and you get caption "Illustration 1 Test"

----

Problem 2:
Position select Below, Above, for where to put caption in relation to
the body of the picture doesn't work right.  When you add a caption,
select doesn't work, and caption will go below picture by default.  If
you add a second caption, you can choose Position Below or Above.

Expected Result: I can choose to put my caption above or below the picture
when I first access the caption feature.

Actual Result: I can only choose to put a caption above the picture 
the second time I add a caption.

------

Problem 3:
Add a caption choosing the below position (You don't have any choose
anyway, see problem 2)

Add another caption choosing the below position.

The second caption will have "Text 1" added to it instead of "Illustration 1",
see problem 1.  Very odd behavior.  

Expected Result: If I add a caption "test this" and "test this too" to the
bottom of the picture, I get "test this" and "test this too" added to the
bottom of the picture.

Actual Result:
I get "Illustration 1 test this" and "Text 1 test this too" added to the
bottom of the picture.

(FYI See issue 15793 for some save problems with captions in different formats)

Problem 1 is written as a bug, but is more like a feature request; you would
like to have captions that don't have any numbering, right?

Problem 2: Confirmed.

Problem 3: Related to problem 1. By default OOo likes numbering captions (which
I personally like too), but it would be better if OOo also supported disabeling
numbering.

Comment 5 openoffice.org 2006-04-23 15:30:04 UTC
Hmmm. Missed this: One can always select <None> for category. This would be the
answer to Problem 1 & 3 right?

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".

1.	Open an odt file from file new file.
2.	Insert an image in the file, by selecting Insert- > picture -> select file
3.	Try to insert the caption by right clicking on the image and selecting caption option.
4.	After entering the text in the Caption text area the Writer automatically inserts the caption below the image with “Illustration 1” extra added. Also it will not allow us to place the caption where ever we want. It will put the caption below directly.
5.	If you try to add another caption it automatically puts the “Illustration 2 “ and adds the given text and puts it below the First caption.
6.	Now if we add the third caption it comes with “ Text 1 “ added to it instead of Illustration 3 or something like that.

1. Select Caption... - Properties - Category=<None>
2. Indeed, Properties - Position is disabled.
3. Select Caption... - Properties - Category=<None>
