Word – How do Word 2010 captions work


I'm trying to insert caption next to images in a document and I can't make sense of numbering.

For example the numbers of the illustrations go like this: 1, 5, 3, 2, 4, 7, 6 when I list the images from the start of the document to the end.

How should I solve this?

Could it be that you need to update the fields? Try this:

  1. Press Ctrl+A to select all data in the document

  2. Press F9 to update all fields

Hopefully the automatically generated numbers are now in the correct order.
