Hello, Wolfgang

Yes, my caption is small, a few words only (I just want to show a structural
formula of a molecule - so, there isn't much to say about it). When I added
some more words to the caption, then the suggestion of using the caption
package worked. I looked at the Embedded Object for small caption but could
not find anything. The interesting thing is that only the caption stay on
the middle of the page, no matter what I do. The picture itself, goes to the
right, center, left when I just select Paragraph Settings and choose the
justification.

I can't image that this can be so difficult, because it is quite common in
reports, article and thesis to have small captions to the left side (or
justified as would be a large caption).

Someone knows the trick?

Jonatan

PS. I apologize if I am making "well known questions" but I am a newbee ;-)
