Cannot change alignment format for captions

Unread post by Kristin Hayles » Thu Nov 07, 2019 4:26 pm

Hello, I am new to this forum so I hope I am doing this correctly. I have been trying to change the format for captions so that the text is left-justified. As you can see in my screen capture it looks like I have done this. However, the formatting doesn't take effect. Because of H&M attachment restrictions I had to resize the screen capture so you can't read the text, but you can see I have the formatting window open in center and right which shows left justified, but the actual image caption is centered.

Hi Kristin,

I have moved this to the normal Help+Manual 7 forum because this is not a bug. Image captions are always centered and you cannot change that with the caption style because it does not contain any paragraph settings. See here for details: ... tions.html
