I know how to insert caption for image, but what I'm looking for is how to customize the frame.

For example, the default now for the frame will be 0 inch spacing on each side.

I want it to be 0.1 inch spacing at the bottom

I cannot find any way to customize the frame setting from the Styles and Formatting (F11)

Any ideas?

For a single frame you can:

  • Right click on the frame of the caption and select: Frame and make your settings

For more or all frames of the same document you can use Styles&Formatting window (F11):

  • Tab Frame Styles (third from left) > Frame > right click > Modify and make all your settings.

This gives you also the possibility to define several frame styles for the same document. In this case use New instead of Modify.

Styles&Formatting is a very powerful feature of LibO. I recommend to have a look at the free guides which you can download from

It does not work with auto-caption.

I have customized the Frame style, for example changing borders to dotted line.

When I insert a picture, which I have enabled an auto-caption for picture, the frame is still default, with no border around.

If I click the frame, and select from bar above the "Frame" style, then the frame will be applied.

It does not being applied automatically during auto-caption
