I have a guide that has many .png files. I am attempting to caption with the file name of the image. However, at this point I can't seem to get any caption to display.

I did some testing and wanted to confirm something. I go to a blank document, add an image and with no style and not achored. Caption generates fine. I added the same style from the other document. Caption generated. However, the graphic object once anchored, does not generate. Can anyone confirm this is normal. Also, what is the workaround, because I need the images to stay with the set of directions it is illustrating?
