I want to use a Frame and assign a style to it, but I want to also insert the picture in the frame as Normal text and have the Action Caption within the frame as Arial Narrow 10 pt (Action Caption Style) which I use for my TOC figures list. Will Frames let you assign two styles with this add in?

This is useful, but I have to go into each frame, select the caption and press F9 to refresh/update the caption number - is there a way around this?
