Not sure on how to reproduce what you see in your environment. We are,
however, using versions that are not that far apart ( on Fedora
downloaded from LO). I did the following:

 - Insert an image
- Set the anchor to "Anchor as character"
- Right-click on the image, then select Insert Caption. This will place
a frame around the image and insert some text with the format Figure as
you indicated
- Go in the frame and do the following:
   - Position the cursor on the caption
   - Hit the "Home" button to go to the beginning of the caption
   - Hit the Left arrow key to place the cursor just after the image
   - Hit Return

Doing this allowed me to position the caption correctly (both
vertically with paragraph spacing and horizontally with indentation -
make sure the caption is left justified when you play with the

The only way I could see something similar to what you are describing
is when the image anchor is "Anchor to Paragraph" in which case the
caption (and the image for that matter) does seem to have a mind of its

I hope this helps.

I have a small bitmap graphic that I sized to be the width of the first
line of a paragraph, to which first line indent style is applied. I
modified the style to make the first line indent 21.6 pt.

I created a caption for the graphic to be below it. As far as I can
tell the paragraph style for a caption is Figure. After creating the
caption (several lines high) I wanted its entire left margin to be 21.6
pt, but it appeared to be about 35 pt or so. I had to manually set the
left margin of the caption to be 11 pt in order to make it appear at
21.6 pt. This makes no sense to me.

Worse, there is a space between the caption and the image above it, as
well as a space between the caption and the following text, and this
space is too tall. I looked at the Figure style and it was set to place
6 pt above and below, but changing them both to 0 made no difference.
None of the regular text has anything but 0 in the paragraph settings
for space above or below.

I think there is something fundamental about the spacing for captions
that I don't understand. Can someone give me a clue?
