I agree. This enhancement could be very helpful.

Definitely worth having if the contextual menu option can correctly detect that the image has a caption frame around it, as presently 'insert caption' doesnt do this, so you could insert multiple captions on a single image.

I'm for a menu item 'Insert caption' (bug 87590) that could be replaced by 'Remove Caption' (don't know in what situation this would be handy, though). But as long we do not have insert there is no reason for remove.

Hi Heiko,
The 'insert caption' option in table menu was removed in https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=4d0b11411d11050b13b821e847bab86f1247bcea...
In my option, it should be re-added for consistency reasons as the same option is displayed for the rest of objects... 

What do you think ?

(In reply to Xisco Faulí from comment #6)
> The 'insert caption' option in table menu was removed...

Jay removed the function to streamline the menu and IIRC there was no objection but mine. The idea in comment 3 before that change was to hijack the Insert Caption command. I disagree with Remove when no Insert is there and we have to define the scope - guess it's not only the text (which can be easily cleared) but also the frame around.

I don't understood why Insert Caption shouldn't be in the context menu cause it's 100 % an contextual action and it work file in writer.

I would have Insert Caption in all the different writer graphic, frame, table, form, media context menues.
