Hi there

I'm trying to add an image with a little text below.  The best way I found is adding an anchored frame at insertion point, inside it I add a text frame (in this frame I write the text centered) and inside it I add another anchored frame at top of column and centered with the image.

Is there something easier? I need to place the image anchored in most cases.

Thanks a lot

I'd recommend a 1-cell table with a title below for captions below the image.However, this may lead to issues in PDF and HTML output, and so I prefer to place the title above, and place the anchored frame in the title.For frames without a title, I like using an anchored frame and then using an Object Style to control placement.-Matt

What's the work-flow?

There are more degrees of freedom on this for PDF or print, vs. XML/HTML/eBook.

My approach is to use two styles, :fig for the paragraph where the frame is anchored and then :figcap for the caption. :fig is set Not fixed, :figcap is set to Keep with previous, and on screen they look like this:
