When you generate a table of figures, pictures, images, …, the important distinctive information is not the paragraph style of the caption (there are already several built-in variations) but the “counter” used to number the “caption”.
At time of
Caption, you noticed a Category drop-down menu allowing to choose a numbering sequence.
[None] is used to disable numbering. Other choices are Illustration, Text, Table, Figure, Drawing, … You can even create your own categories.
TOC & Index>
TOC, Index or Bibliography is the command to create a table of items flagged with a “counter”. In
Type tab, select
Table of Figures from the Type drop-down menu. In Category, select the “counter” you used to number your “captions”. Choose the other settings to your liking.
Nota: it is always possible to add a numbering if you didn’t do it in the first place with
Variables tab, Type Number range and choosing the adequate “counter”.
