Using captions to identify graphic elements
You can add captions to tables and figures to identify them. All captions in Word begin
with a label , which is the text that appears before a caption name. Word provides
default labels, such as “Figure” and “Table.” You can also create custom labels.
To add captions to figures or tables:
1 Select the figure or table for which you want to add a caption.
2 On the References tab, in the Captions group, click Insert Caption to open the
Caption dialog box.
3 Click the New Label button if you want to change the label. Figure is the default
label, as shown in Exhibit 6-10.
4 In the Caption box, enter the desired caption text.
5 Click OK.
