Let’s do the table of figures first (it doesn’t matter which order you do this in).
Create a blank page where you want your table of figures to go, or click just below your Table of Contents if you’ve already created that.
Always save a copy of your document before manipulating it.
I bear no responsibility for any pickles you might get yourself into!
When you’re adding a caption, click the Numbering button.
You will now get options for changing the numbering from 1, 2, 3 to a, b, c, etc. You can also link the numbering to your chapter numbering – so you have Figures 1-1, 1-2, 2-1, 2-2 etc.
You can also press the 'F9' key to update all figures at once.5.
You don't need to make any changes to a table of figures, as it will update automatically as necessary.3.
How do you create a two-line figure caption and a one-line entry in the table of figures?
Right-click with your mouse and then click on the 'Update Field' option, which will only update the figures in your document.
If you’ve copied the caption text you had previously entered, you can use Control-V to paste it into this box.
Note: right-click and paste won’t work here, but Control-V will work.
This time, choose Figure rather than Table: This time, just leave the Caption box blank apart from the words Figure 1.
