Center Figure number under anchored frame

OK, I have a document with over 300 pages. I am added images to a lot of this. The orignal document had most of the images centered. The customer doesn't like most of these and wantes them moved to the side cloest to the binding. No problem moving them. Now for the problem. The figure numbers stay in the center of the page. Is there a way to link them to stay with the anchored frme centered under it and move with it to the side closest to the binding with having to add a test frame to each anchored frame?

The paragraph with the figure number has a Paragraph Format associated with it. You should be able to change the Alignment property under the Basic tab and click Update All. If the binding alternates left and right and you want the alignment to follow the anchored frame's alignment, you will have to assign a unique Paragraph Format to each figure number paragraph, depending on the page side. Unfortunately, if your document reflows, the anchored frames will realign, but the paragraphs won't. This would be a good candidate for a script.

If, as is usually the case, the caption needs to be centered under the now-non-centered image, changing the alignment of the paragpah hosting the Anchored⊥Frame is likely to break that.

A common work-around is to put the imports in a borderless 2-row table, with the image in the upper row, and the caption in the lower.

If there is also a need for an image accession# or metadata, the table can be multi-column, with the top row straddled.

Hi Eric:

 

This is a good FrameMaker feature request.
https://tracker.adobe.com/#/add_feature

 

Adobe InDesign has the same four paragraph alignment options—Left, Right, Center and Justified— as FrameMaker, plus a few more: variations on how the last line is aligned on justified type, but also Towards Spine and Away from Spine. The second to last one would take care of this for you automatically, if only it was included in FrameMaker.  If you decide to add it as a feature request, come back and let us know. I'd be happy to vote for it.

Hi,

Yes. This would be a good feature. There is already a request from 2018 for this!

https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/FRMAKER-4815

When you support this feature, open this page and vote for it!

 

When you are at it: There is also a feature request for vertical alignment. However, it is closed, as this feature request was said to be merged with another one which I cannot open.

https://tracker.adobe.com/#/view/FRMAKER-9274

But the issue, which it should have been merged with, does not exist:
