The link tool now includes a dedicated Figure Link option for linking to figures, tables and link captions that have been added to the list of figures. The figure is selected in the same way as an anchor in a topic.
The topic link tool can now link to images, tables and caption objects for figure and table counters with regular topic links, in the same way that you link to anchors. The only requirement is that the target object must have an ID assigned to it. Then the ID will show up in list of anchors displayed in the drop-down beside the Target: field in the link tool.
