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 illustrations automatically.

I trust this helps.
