Caption was removed from the table context menu due to context menu size

In order to accurately place a caption for a floating image, a frame is needed
to be placed around it to make sure the caption aligns with the image. Maybe
the alternative solution is to have an option in the caption dialog to
enable/disable to creation of the frame.

@Maxim: Would it be easy to create a single UNO command to be able to open the
insert field dialog at a particular field or insert any field, similar to how
we have for changing styles and changing slide layout? So something like this
to open the insert field dialog at a particular field type

.uno:InsertField?type=Number range&select=Table

and something like this to insert a field directly

.uno:InsertField?type=Number range&select=Table&format=Arabic (1 2
