    Inline Figure Numbering: Best Practice

    jgant1 Level 1

      Hi all,

       

      I'm seeking input into what the best practice is for numbering images/figures that are placed inline in a document. I want these figures to have consecutive numbers and to move with the text as the text is edited.

       

      The crucial part is that I want to do this in a way that I can put a new figure into the document, and all the following figures will be renumbered automatically.

       

      I can do this if I use a different "Figures" master page that is applied to pages that contain ONLY figures and no text, but I can't seem to figure out the best way to do it inline throughout the document.

       

      If I anchor objects inline, in the order that I want them to appear, the numbering works just fine, but as soon as I insert and anchor a new figure in the middle with automatic figure numbering, the newest anchored image becomes "Figure 1" and renumbers the entirety of the document.

       

      Thanks!
