caption numbering positioning

Readers,

The default behaviour of the 'caption' feature is to place the
category text ('illustration') after the numbering symbol (arabic
number). How to change so that the category text is by default before
the numbering symbol?

'Figure 1' is preferred to '1 Figure' ! :)

Are you using AutoCaption?  If so, go to Tools | Options... |
LibreOffice Writer | AutoCaption and change the selection in the
drop-down list for "Caption order".

Are you adding captions manually?  In the Caption dialogue, click
Options... and again change the selection in the drop-down list for
"Caption order"..

I trust this helps.

Indeed the example is the preferred version. The other one doesn't really make sense.

Brian, thanks for the hint on where the setting needs to be done.
