Chapter 6. Table Survival Guide > Tables for Figure and Caption Placement

Tables for Figure and Caption Placement

When figures with captions must be inserted in documents, a common approach is to put each figure caption on a separate paragraph line with its own paragraph tag applied either above or below the anchored frame that contains the figure. Although this technique is a good method to use to insert figures and their captions, sometimes the captions can get separated from the figures. For example, you might have seen a figure caption on the page after the figure itself. This problem is easy to fix for a few figures, but when documents have more than a few figures, it can be time-consuming to fix all occurrences.

Consider using tables as a solution to keep figures and their captions together. The Table Designer also allows you to specify spacing above and below each table. Therefore, you can easily keep spacing consistent throughout the document for all figures with captions. You can configure the table in a variety of ways, depending on the intended look of your document. Two methods that work well are described in the following sections.
