## Description

Using option `[way=bysection]` resets the numbering to 1 at each new section, but does not prefix the numbers with the section number, to do that, use the following options: ``` \setupcaptions[way=bysection,prefixsegments=section] ```

If one has only a small number of figures and wishes to label them sequentially from 1 to n, the following works: ``` \setupcaptions[way=bytext, prefixsegments=none] ```

If you like to have a colon in your caption, try: ``` \setupcaptions[suffix={:}] ```

If you don't like default captions that are driven by figure(table) width, try: ``` \setupcaptions[minwidth=\textwidth, align=middle] ```
