Did you know that you can easily insert captions in a Word 2013 document?
When you insert tables, pictures and other objects in your Word 2013 document, you’ll want to add captions to it. The caption can help make the object accessible and provide clarification. The caption will also help you refer to the object within the document.
Fortunately, Word makes it easy for you to insert a caption for your table or picture. Just follow these steps:
- Select the object where you want to provide a caption
- Click on the References tab, then select the Captions group
- Click on the Insert Caption icon
- In the Label box, select the type of label type [Note: Word provides default labels of Equation, Figure, and Table; but you can add additional labels as needed!]
- In the Position box, specify the placement of the label
- In the Caption box, insert any additional information
- Click OK
The caption is inserted as a field. This means the numbering will update automatically. This simplifies things if you need to rearrange your document.
