Word – How to force Word to recompute image numbers

microsoft word

I have a word document containing images and tables. These have captions which are numbered, like "Image 1-Example of something". Later on I decided to rearrange some of chapters of my document. However numbering of objects remained the same, so the first image is image 8, the second is image 3, etc.

I want to force Word to recompute image numbering so first image in document would be image 1, the second – image 2, etc.

Is that possible? Will references (added through cross reference feature) to those objects be updated?

You need to update all references in your document. To do so select all of the document (Ctrl+A) then press F9.
