1. Select the image you want to insert a caption for, and go to References tab, then click Insert Caption, which is in Captions section.

2. When Caption dialog box appears, click New Label and type a caption you prefer in New Label pop-up box, then hit OK when you are done. Here I take Must-see attraction as an example.

3. The caption you typed in Step 2 will automatically be entered into Caption box and Label box, and the sequence numbers will also be generated automatically. You could also choose the position where the caption is placed: Above selected item or Below selected item, by selecting option from the related drop-down list.

    1) How do you create a caption WITHOUT a sequence number? I just want to attach text to the bottom of pictures, without any numbers
    2) With a picture placed with text wrapping around, how do you make the text “stick” to the picture if the picture is moved?

    I’d expect it should be apple-pie-simple to do this, but instead it gets extraordinarily difficult very quickly, AFAIK.
