    Is there any way to group a picture and its caption so that they move together? In the past I have placed pictures and their captions inside a text box, then turn on Wrapping and I am ablle to move the text box around. However, it seems that when captions are inside text boxes the Table of Figures cannot find the captions.

    Chuck,

    Convert the text boxes to Frames and the numbering will work.

    It doesn't seem to work in Word 2007 for me. The Table of Figures can't find captions inside text boxes or frames. It's too bad we cannot group a text box or picture with a caption so they would stay together.

    Chuck,

    I just conducted a test on my Laptop that has Office 2007 and I had no trouble placing a text box, inserting a graphic, putting a caption on the graphic {via right-click context menu}, then converting the textbox to a Frame. I then followed the same procedure to insert a new text box above the first and the captions automatically renumbered. See attached.

    Thanks, I tried it once more and it worked. I don't know what happened before as I tried several times with no luck.
