I can see how to make minor changes to the formatting (font, etc) but not the general layout. I need to follow a format so that I have

  1. The number (Just "6", not "Figure 6")
  2. A tab/gap
  3. The caption
  4. Leader dots ending well before the page number
  5. A gap (fixed size, not aligning)
  6. The page number

Is this possible?

I tried and came up with the following screenshot. Is this what you want to do?

Seems to me to exactly meet the requirements (so +1) though I presume the OP would appreciate some help with the specifics, for example could you replace the image above with one that shows the left and right align markers and maybe Ctrl+Shift+8 to show the tabs? –  pnuts Oct 10 '12 at 15:20
    
That looks great! Can you post how you got it? (I still need to read the link in the comment above, which may explain it some.) I'm not a heavy Word user and didn't see how I could use more than the basic configuration options. –  Mike Graham Oct 10 '12 at 18:58
    
@ Mike Graham - which one looks great, first or second list? (there is a slight difference in formatting the leading dots) –  Murat Arpat Oct 11 '12 at 9:27
    
@MuratArpat, The second looks better. What I really want is a fixed-width gap (non-aligning) after the figure caption, but I think I could really work with either of these. –  Mike Graham Oct 11 '12 at 11:32

OK, I will prepare a doc with screenshots, and when it is ready I'll put it on my site. One thing I should mention is that the result in figure above involves a little manual input which should be done after the table of figures is finalized, as I could not do everything automatically. –  Murat Arpat Oct 12 '12 at 5:58
