Description toddrme2178 2011-04-29 05:24:35 UTC
It would be really useful to be able to set a caption to be located to the left or right of an object.  This is particularly useful if you want the caption to be a single number.  These are very common format for formulas, for example:

[Formula] (1)
[Formula] (2)

or 

(1) [Formula]
(2) [Formula]

Dear bug submitter!

Due to the fact, that there are a lot of NEEDINFO bugs with no answer within the last six months, we close all of these bugs.

To keep this message short, more infos are available @ https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/NeedinfoClosure#Statement

Thanks for understanding and hopefully updating your bug, so that everything is prepared for developers to fix your problem.

Yours!

Florian

New (confirmed)
Enhancement
Medium - seems useful for anyone using captions to have some freedom of where the caption is placed


Note: A useful option would be to have a similar graphic as you do when you do Format -> Page -> Background and select Graphic, the dialog then allows you to select 9 placement points for the background image. Similar functionality for captions would be nice.
