And I added that all in lightroom – but is there a way, when I email or export them the images, that the information is also attached?

It depends on what you mean by "attached". If you mean a separate text file containing that data, then Lightroom (CC or Classic) cannot do that (although there may be an export plug-in for Classic that can).

If using Classic, when you export and you select the "All Metadata" option to be included in the Metadata panel of the export dialog, the data is included in the appropriate section of the file header of the exported file, and can be seen by viewing the file properties in a file browser (Fin

If using LRCC, that data is included automatically in the file header of the exported file and can be viewed in the same way.

I am using Lightroom CC. I have prepared 190 captions for a new book. Because the window is so small for captions (and unwieldy) I would like to export the captions with the photo’s ID number to a Pages file for editing and correcting.  How can I do that?  —-or perhaps I should ask, is that possible?

I don't know of any way of doing that, but why not enter/correct the captions using the LRCC Web app instead of the LRCC desktop app? The captions can be multi-line in the web app, unlike that restricted window in the desktop app, and of course the changes sync to all the LRCC apps.

I'm also on LR Classic.  Yes, the input field for Title appears quite small.  What I do is a copy/paste and just dump into it.  I've loaded it with many lines of text, giving a précis of a scanned document or image intent.  The comment section below will also accept several paragraphs of my ranting, and frankly I've never hit a limit or truncation yet.
Try it.

I fooled around some more, please excuse the inane text ~ it does fill up space for 'illustration'.
