These settings allow you to control how EA diagrams will be printed.

Diagram Numbering

This is by default switched-on, and will print a caption under each diagram like:

<FigureText> <diagram number> <diagram title>

<Diagram description>

The Diagram Title and Diagram Description are taken from the diagram name & diagram notes in EA.

The 'Figure Text' defaults to the word 'Figure', but this can be changed in the Application Settings to be a word which makes sense in you national language.

The 'diagram number' is by default a single digit. You may choose to make this a two-digit number, such as 4.2, where the '4' is the chapter number. See Word help on 'Captions'.
