7.1.1 Caption association buttons

These buttons allow you to control the association of images and caption information:

Associate Caption Box with Image: This button becomes enabled when you have multi-selected an unassociated image and a text box. When you click this button, the text in the selected box becomes associated with the image as its caption.

Jump to Caption: This button is enabled when you have selected an image which has a caption box associated with it. Clicking the button selects the caption box and scrolls it into view.

Remove Caption Association: This button is enabled when you have selected an image that has a caption box associated with it. Clicking the icon breaks the association.

An alternative to using the buttons is to use menu items in the Atomik Tools menu which are enabled when an appropriate selection is made. The Atomik Tools menu can be found in the context menu when right-clicking (or Ctrl+clicking) a box selection and can also be found in the InDesign “Object” menu.

Associating text when an image is grouped with multiple boxes

If an image and multiple text boxes are selected, or if an image is grouped with multiple text boxes and the “Associate Caption Box with Image” menu item or button is chosen, then it may not be clear to Atomik Tools which text box to use. In this situation Atomik Tools will display a dialog where you can choose which text box represents the caption and which text box represents the copyright information.
