A table of figures is a list of the captions of all the images in your project with references to their page numbers.
Note that some of the DOCX templates included with Help+Manual already come with a table of figures pre-configured. So check it in a template you're using first by editing it in Word, before you try to create one yourself.
Step 1: Enter captions for all the images you want to include in the Table of Figures
Captions are required for the Table of Figures, because the captions are the entries in the table. You enter them in the topic editor by double-clicking on the image in the editor.
Step 2: Set the language for the table field to 'English (United States)'
Step 3: Create the table of figures entry in your DOCX template
1.Create a page in the DOCX template for the Table of Figures. There is no required location, you can place it before or after the Topics Section as you please.
2.If you want to include an entry for the Table of Figures in the TOC, create a header using a style that you have included as a level 1 item in the Table of Contents field.
3.Click in the position where you want the Table of Figures to appear.
4.If your document language is set to anything other than English you need to set the language for the paragraph that will contain the Table of Figures field to English (United States). If you don't do this Word will not be able to find the figure number references in the captions in the Help+Manual text.
This will not affect the language of the label text in the generated Table of Figures. For example, if the label text for the figures in your project are in German or French, they will still appear in German or French in the generated table with this setting!
5.Then select the tab in Word and click on in the Captions section.
Word Table of Figures dialog
6.Select the Options... item in the Word Table of Figures dialog and then select Style as the source for the Table of Figures. (This will only be present if you use one of the existing Help+Manual DOCX templates as your starting point.) Then select H+M Image Caption as the style to use. You can configure everything else as you please, of course. Consult the Word documentation for further details.
