I am working on a collection catalog and have hundreds of images that will all need sequential figure numbers in the accompanying text/captions (ie: the first painting is Figure 1; the second painting Figure 2. Each figure is accompanied by text labeled Figure 1, etc.) Is there a way to automatically link the figure number with each image so that the figures will number automatically? Or is there some way to automate this process so that I don't have to manually key in hundreds of figure numbers? Thanks!
Have you considered using a Numbered List as part of your paragraph style?
No, I hadn't thought of that ....I'll try it!
