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 don't think there is any menu. Good news: your problem can be
solved. Bad news: this is not straightforward way.
Let's assume you have two images with captions from different ranges
and you want them to be in one range ("Illustration"). Go to View ->
Field Names (or press Ctrl+F9). Instead of number you will see text
"Number range <Drawing or Illustration>". Right click on that text,
and select "Fields...".
In lower part of new window you will see "Value field". One will
have "Illustration+1" and second will have "Drawing+1". You want
both fields in captions to have the same value, e.g.
"Illustration+1". You may want to copy and paste it to be sure there
is no spelling mistake.
Click "OK" to close that window. LO (at least 3.4.6) does not update
field text, so you may think that nothing has changed. But if you
press Ctrl+F9 again, you will see that second number is greater than first one.
All you have to do now is manually change "Drawing" to
"Illustration" in second caption, as Tom said.
You may want to make sure that there is checkbox checked in Tools ->
Options -> Appearance -> Field shadings Then all fields
(automatically updated text) will have different background color.
This way you may be sure which text is safe to remove and which has
special meaning (it is safe to remove, too, but may break your numbering).
Sorry, but this doesn't work. The new field will read "Drawing =
Illustration+1" - not "Illustration = Illustration+1", as it needs
to. This means that the modified field will give the correct
illustration number for this illustration, but the next illustration
will repeat the same number (and any later illustrations have numbers
one too small), and any later drawings will in general have wrong
numbers too. That's why there is a problem.
