I'm hoping that somebody can point me in the right direction on these two questions regarding figure number and captions.
Question 1 I am writing a catalogue that when finished will have many thousands of figures. The issue is that some of these figures belong to different series, for example I will have figures 1, 2, 3, etc., but also figures A1, A2, A3 etc. (there will be multiple series). (The reason for needing this is that there are certain classes of images, and hence they need separating into different series for ease). (The picture below shows what I require so there's four figures numbered 3500, 3501 etc., but another one numbered H288.
I've looked at this website and can see how to change what it writes in the caption so I can force an A before it, but I need a number of counters. Any idea how this can be done?
I have multiple images that need several figure captions. I need to place several figure captions (1, 2, 3 etc.) under them, and then another figure caption under the entire image.
I could reproduce the image twice, but that seems a little pointless.
