And as Tim pointed out to me -- if I use the Insert Figure Caption tool, it works :-)

I have to go back on the starting Tables of figures on a new page working -- they now do, but if the Table of figures is longer than one page, it breaks, leaves a blank page, and continues on the next odd page.

Check your page break settings in the Tables section of the PDF template, in the table at the bottom of the dialog for the individual table types. You should be able to choose between None, New Page, New Odd Page and New Even Page. If you don't see those options when you select in the Page Break column you need to download the current HM build:

Hi Tim,
I have Build 5763.
The Page Options for [Tables] is set to Always on an odd page.
The band settings for
- List of Tables Heading
- List of Figures Heading
- List of Custom Figure ...

are all "New Odd Page".
The break I mentioned is in the respective table, i.e. they each now start on a new odd page which you fixed, but if they are longer than one page, the second page is also on a new odd page.

It's a new function in the beta build so it still needs fine-tuning. Thanks for reporting this, I'll pass it on. 8)

Hi Tim,
Thanks again -- hope I'm not being a pain.
The tables now pagebreak as desired.

One more thing -- the title "Table of figures" is repeated on all New odd pages. Can you add a "First odd page only" option?
The title "Table of tables" is repeated on all pages.

Page options and band breaks are as described previously.

Ok. Can you adjust the Table section in the mnl to be on three separate pages?

Hi Tim,
Yes I know -- but it repeats the headers.
I had hoped that if you separated the three Table layouts from one page to three pages, it would solve the problem. But you're right that that won't work either if there is no "First page only" switch.
