12.8.9 Labels and captions in ODT export

You can label and caption various category of objects—an inline image, a table, a LaTeX fragment or a Math formula—using #+LABEL and #+CAPTION lines. See Images and tables. ODT exporter enumerates each labeled or captioned object of a given category separately. As a result, each such object is assigned a sequence number based on order of it's appearance in the Org file.

In the exported document, a user-provided caption is augmented with the category and sequence number. Consider the following inline image in an Org file.

     #+CAPTION: Bell curve
     #+LABEL:   fig:SED-HR4049
     [[./img/a.png]]

It could be rendered as shown below in the exported document.

     Figure 2: Bell curve

You can modify the category component of the caption by customizing the variable org-export-odt-category-strings. For example, to tag all embedded images with the string ‘Illustration’ (instead of the default ‘Figure’) use the following setting.

     (setq org-export-odt-category-strings
           '(("en" "Table" "Illustration" "Equation" "Equation")))

With this, previous image will be captioned as below in the exported document.
