    caption

    I've inserted a jpeg into a doc. what's the most straightforward way to add a caption to it.
    insert>caption i don't like cos it puts things like "fig.1" etc. when i want simply want to type my own stuff.

    It depends on what it is you want to do with the caption. If you just want it to show up on the page, I would suggest using a text box. If both your picture and the text box are set for wrapping the same way, you can "group" them so that moving one will move the other.

    If you want your picture to show up in an Index or Table somewhere else in your document, you're best off sticking with the traditional caption.

    Hi CJ:

    I agree with Charles, but thought I would add that you CAN add your own labels if you don't like the default labels that come with Word. Just go to Insert/Caption & you'll see that there is an option for a "New Label". Then you'll have your own labels that Word will collect into a TOF.

    Cheers.
