Word 2007 Captions – Automatically insert characters *after* numbered label?
Hello everyone, I have many images in my document which need captioning, and I would like to be able to automate an operation which up until now I have had to do manually: insert a punctuation mark after the text that is automatically added by word (i.e. label and number) when you go to References|Insert Caption. So I would like, for instance, when I add a new caption, the automatic text to not just be "Figure 1", but have a colon and a space added after it - "Figure 1: ". I know you can customise labels, and also the way the numbering is done, but I haven't found a way of customising what comes after. Perhaps using a macro? Thanks for any help.
