Is there a way of using the 'caption' functionality of Writer in Impress? In writer, right-clicking on an image allows one to enter a (numbered) caption. I'd like to use this feature in my presentation. Is it possible?
The same question for 'insert note' in Calc: can this be applied to text in a presentation? Then, clicking on a word or image would produce the note.

Kind regards,
IL

If you have the same problem, well, here is my way of manually adding a caption to an imange in Impress:
1) Insert your image
2) Draw a rectangle around allowing for sufficient space under your image; use white as fill-colour, and then send it backwards.
3) Right-click on your rectangle, select 'text' and then achor the text at the bottom, press ok.
4) Now double-click the rectangle and type your text (adjust font-size). You can edit your text as you 'd normally do.

If you have more than one image with caption, you can save time by copying and pasting this rectangle, and adjusting size and text.

see an example: http://users.skynet.be/bk244875/caption.sxi
