Question

Q: is there a way to have caption label & number in bold but not the title? This thread is locked from future replies

i.e. I want:

Figure 2.3 Graph of water content versus time

 

I can see in Styles & Formatting how to have Caption + Bold or Caption + Not Bold.

I want the title of the Figure/Table etc. to appear in my TOC; so the title needs to be in the caption (I think)?

 

Cheers!

A:

If you know Macro, you can consider converting the manual task to Macro.

Referring to this link: http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/6888-how-have-two-formats-caption-style-label.html

The macro is as follow:

Sub CaptionBold() Application.ScreenUpdating = False With ActiveDocument.Range With .Find .ClearFormatting .Text = "" .Style = "Caption" .Replacement.Text = "" .Forward = True .Wrap = wdFindStop .Format = True .MatchCase = False .MatchWholeWord = False .MatchWildcards = False .MatchSoundsLike = False .MatchAllWordForms = False .Execute End With Do While .Find.Found With .Paragraphs.Last.Range.Duplicate .End = .Start + Len(Split(.Text, " ")(0)) + 1 .MoveEndUntil " ", wdForward .Style = "Strong" End With .Collapse wdCollapseEnd .Find.Execute Loop End With Application.ScreenUpdating = True End Sub

Run the Macro to update the character style to Strong for all the captions.

A:

This is basically a manual task. You'd have to apply bold formatting to the caption label and number for each caption.
