I just put all my preferences (under View Preferences) back to the defaults
and now the titles and captions show again.

A bit of experimentation makes me think that the problem is with rtf files.
If I set the Genbox to use the "RTF default application" - in my case MS
Word - no titles and captions. When I run the report using the internal
viewer I see the title and captions, but if I then save that report as an
RTF and open it in Word the titles and captions are gone again.

I also get Cheri's text left/right margin problem (both before and after
having changed the preferences). And when I do see titles and captions, it
inserts field codes instead of the names (or whatever) those codes should
refer to.

I still get titles and captions with default individual narrative report and
selecting the same options as you did. I also added a image to an event for
the same person and that didn't change it: it was shown when I selected the
correct options for mediafiles. When I select Default, the title is centered
above the picture and the caption is placed bottom-left. I assume you've
experimented with different placings? I'm wondering where the "default"
setting would be defined.

The only options I can see that could influence the titles and captions are
the font-settings (on the same tab) and the Media-margins on the Format-tab.

I do get Cheri's problem: select Text left/right margin for mediaplacement
and the is gone.
