There is a little bit weird work around.

  1. Insert a picture, open the style manager (F11) > Graphics should should be selected/highlighted
  2. Modify the Graphics style this way: Width = 9 cm (or other); Height = [x] AutoSize
  3. Insert the image, it can be wider or slimmer than the chosen 9 cm
  4. Right click on the image (green handles): Insert Caption
  5. Frame (not image!) is selected (green handles): Double click on Graphics in the style manager
  6. Image moves proportional to chosen width, as desired

Little bug: Between upper boundary of frame and image you have some little space. If there is not any border defined it is not to be seen in the print preview or in the printout.

Tried on: LibreOffice 5.3.5.2

If there is not defined any border defined it this mistake is not to be seen in the print preview or in the printout.printout. If you define a border, so don't synchronize the distances; it is possible to diminish the bug (set the upper distance on 0, the other ones on ca 0,2 cm).

PS: I hope this is a "a more elegant solution" ;-)

  1. Insert a picture, open the style manager (F11) > Graphics should should be selected/highlighted
  2. Modify the Graphics style this way: Width = 9 cm (or other); Height = [x] AutoSizeAutoSize. From now on the Graphics style can be applied to each inserted image/Caption frame, see point 5.
  3. Insert the any new image, it can be wider or slimmer than the chosen 9 cm
  4. Right click on the image (green handles/grip points): Insert Caption

PPS: An open question and - in my view - unsolved is the problem to save graphic and frame properties anchored "as character" in current file and within the default page style. The update style function seems to work roguely.
