Description internationils 2017-07-19 10:19:07 UTC
I have documents with a lot of images and would like to label them with the filename (also to guard against ). It would be great to have an option to automatically add the filename (with or without the full path) as an automatic caption.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add image
2. Add caption
3. No automatic filename ...

Actual Results:  
No filename in caption

Expected Results:
Filename in caption

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Definitely not the caption as this usually holds different information like 'Figure 1: Visualization of Foo" where the file itself is rather "foo.png".
However we also have name and description (properties > options in Writer) that could be used. In Impress/Draw and Calc this dialog doesn't exist, which is odd (bug 90169 comment 7), but access to both fields is given via main menu.
Other opinions?

No further opinion so I resolve it as WONTFIX. Your use case is very special and would be solved best via macro.
