In a writer document, I have tables and images. I add legends, which are part of a List of Tables and List of Figures. It works very well. I want to add details to each of my tables and images (i.e. : "Sources", which indicate where my data come from), but details which will not appear in the List of Tables and List of Figures. I've not found the way to do so. How do you make that ?

So I want :

%Image or Table %with a Legend which is included in a List of Figures or Liste of Tables. Works great... %with another text frame, attached to the Image or Table, with details such as sources, but whose text does not appear in the Lists of...

Thanks for your help.

OK, I've found something : - insert a legend, category "Table" or "Illustration" - insert another legend, category "none". All details I want to add but withoud being in my Lists of Tables or Illustrations.

If there is another way to do the same, let me know it ! Thanks,

You can insert the illustration/table inside a custom frame and add any text to that frame. In fact, picture captions are just that: an enclosing frame with a "category" (Illustration, Figure, etc.), a number range and a particular paragraph style applied to it.
