I have about a 1000 pictures in my book and would like to put static captions on all of them. Is there a way to do that for the entire book, or do I have to do it page by page. Currently, I'm selecting all the pictures on a page and then enabling the static captions. I'm wondering if it's possible to do it for the entire book in one fell swoop, instead of page by page.
Did you try LabelGraphics.jsx, a script that comes already installed into InDesign? It is already within Window > Utilities > Scripts panel.
Or this variation on the script?
