Rename caption category

Scenario: I am working with Writer and I have been using automatic captions for images so they are labeled Image xx. However, I made up my mind and I would like to change the category of all the already existing captions so they are called Figure xx instead. Unfortunately it is not so easy as simply renaming the caption text, as I encounter two problems:

  1. I have plenty of images and renaming one by one is quite time consuming. Since the word Image is very common I cannot perform a regular search and replace.
  2. I am using automatic images' index, so the new and old images need to belong to the same category, as indexes only allow one category at a time.

So my question is: Is there any automated way to rename an already used caption category?
