Hi, Peter et al:

        Chastened by Peter in the following direct e-mail, I will share it for
everyone's      edification, though in abridged form.

Sorry for any lack of clarity, or too much brevity (can one have too
much brevity?) My suggestion works on the principle of a white
("invisible") cross-reference source (the thing you may think of as
what you point to, but which is commonly called the source), so when
you activate the link in a PDF, it's at the top of the screen. That's
one reference to the source, in text somewhere that says "(Figure
X-i" or whatever.) The second reference to this source is below the
graphic, either in a table cell, table title below, or even in a text
frame in the anchored frame with the graphic; it's not white, so it's
visible. The reader sees the caption where it's expected, but the
navigation mechanism in PDF ( as well as in HTML Web pages, which
work the same frustrating way, BTW) positions the invisible source at
the top of the window. If there's too much space at the top, you can
make a small font size part of the paragraph format.

You're welcome. However, in the future, please post your follow-up
questions to the list so that others might help in clarifying, and
also that others can benefit from the clarifications. Please post
your successful steps and results to the list for the others.

        However, I have yet to attempt this method. But instead opted for rush 
captions above.
        My method, however, must have been faulty as will be explained in a
following e-mail. :+}
