Can Impress pictures have captions?

It would be convenient for me to be able to include captions on pictures that I use in an Impress presentation. However, neither the User Guide (version 3.5, chapter 4) nor the context menu give any indication that this is possible.

Do I have to just create a separate frame and put the caption there? Is there an easier way?

I am using OpenSUSE 12.2, LibreOffice 3.5:build-403.

Had the same issue in, didn’t see a bug filed yet, so I did it:

(I would have done this as a comment, but I’m not seeing a place to do that; perhaps it requires more karma?)

Apparently I can comment on my own answers, but not those of others. I’d like to file a bug report for that somewhere ;^)

Status: NEW

Hi @taxpayer,

Per this question it looks like images in Writer can have captions, but I’m not sure about Impress.

@taxpayer - @qubit1 is right. No captions in Impress but in Writer. I made a test in 3.6.5
