Figure numbers in captions in generate documents?
« on: July 20, 2017, 10:31:56 am »
I've searched for a way to do this but haven't found anything.

How do I add Figure numbers and captions in generated documentation?

Thanks

Sorry, I have no idea how they do it - it just works. My company uses a third party plugin that generates our documents of EA and it puts these informations on correct place.

In template enable the diagram in the sections by ticking the box.
Within the two yellow tags for diagram, right click and from the context menu insert field>Figure gives you the figure number. You can add other text too
So it could look something like this;

diagram>
{Diagram.DiagramImg}
Figure {Diagram.Figure}: {Diagram.Name}
<diagram

eaDocX will let you use the Word function for doing this, so you can get numbering, and all the Word stuff like table-of-figures.

Thanks all,

This worked: Figure {Diagram.Figure}: {Diagram.Name}

Now I'll start a thread about setting image size.
