Pretty much what the title asks. All captions with the exception of Table have a greyed out and locked display setting, namely to show on the bottom of a figure. However, all of my courses tell me that the correct orientation of such labels must be on top.

Is there any way for me to "unlock" the option to put captions on top?

Current status of both fdo#33338 and fdo#36668 is NEW.

Yikes, that's a pretty dirty workaround. It's still a workaround, though, and also the best-looking alternative to an actual solution at this point, so I suppose this is the answer to my question.

Thanks for the tip, @qubit. I'm actually a bit intimidated to filing bug requests, seeing how everything's in a very technical-looking <pre> format and not much visual formatting whenever I look at such requests. Would it be alright if you could point me to a good resource for making such requests?

@TJ Meneses, Your other bug report (fdo#61493) looked great. Please feel free to give us some feedback on the Bug Submission Assistant, especially if there's any part of it that's confusing or tough to use.

I might consider filing an enhancement bug for this, but I hesitate when there are in fact two other bug reports that also seem to be addressing this issue. Would it be appropriate to make yet another report, or should I just chime in the current ones?

@TJ Meneses -- Oh, I probably misunderstood you when you mentioned a "workaround" in the context of the other bug reports :-) If those other bug reports are indeed covering the same issues that you experienced, please just chime-in there.
