Fine by me. I thought your file names corresponded to figure numbers.
That's how some docs here were once done, and it was a bad idea for the
reasons you gave. I didn't raise that as an issue to avoid being even
more wordy. ;-)

Well, if you're looking at the doc, here's how you'd do it for
referenced graphics: 

1) If the screen shot needs updating, right-click it, click Object
Properties, and note the referenced file name. 

2) Perform your screen capture and save it with that name. 

3) There is no step three. You're done. 

Happy weekend! :-)
