I made the mistake to have one image as Drawing and another one as
Illustration. Now I want to change the Drawing into Illustration.
The Caption entry in the Insert menu is only for creating a new
caption - how can I get a similar menu for editing a caption?
I'm not sure there is any easy direct method. You can edit the text
of a caption in place. You can even edit the headword "Drawing" to
"Illustration" in place - but this does not modify the associated
field, so caption numbering will no longer behave correctly: your new
illustration will be numbered as if it were still a drawing. That's
your problem, of course.
Here's a workaround:
o Click in the image to select it: you will see the eight green
handles. Make sure you select the image and not the frame that
contains the image and its caption.
o Cut the image (Edit | Cut or Ctrl+X).
o Click the edge of the frame that now contains just the caption to select it.
o Press Backspace to delete the frame.
o Paste the cut image (Edit | Paste or Ctrl+V).
o Now create a new "Illustration" caption for the new image.
o If necessary, press F9 to update the fields to renumber the
I trust this helps.
