Guess many users faced the issue of missing caption continuation for a table
spawning over multiple pages. At least it's a frequently discussed topic.

A suggested workaround is to have the cross-reference to the caption in the
first row with the addition of 'continued' and repeat at least this first row
(table properties > text flow > repeat heading). The only dirty solution is how
to hide the top-most row on the first page.

Devs could introduce a function for '[ ] Repeat caption' that inserts a special
row, which is hidden on the first page and automatically taken into to
repetition thing (repeat header shouldn't get mixed, so 1 row is one row - plus
the caption). More difficult is how to bring 'continued' into the reference
since English may work with the addition on the end but other languages not
that well. At least some edit field like '[ ] Repeat caption using
[(continued)]' would be necessary.
