Remove file extension in Captions
I want to set up Captions to have the filename beneath the image, but I want an option to hide the extension.

In Lightroom, there are, among others, fields for Original File Name, File Name, Preserved File Name, and File Base Name. The File Base name field does not show the file extension.
You may not be a Lightroom user, but the same solution should apply: The deeper solution to your question is support for a full range of metadata. If I import a NEF file into Lightroom, and export a TIFF file, and then import that TIFF file into InDesign, then I want the option of displaying:
1) The file name as it is in Lightroom, and/or 2) The file name as exported from Lightroom and imported into InDesign, and/or 3) What you are hoping for, the file name as imported into InDesign without the file extension.
At the moment, there are pitfalls all along the path. I am hoping that Text Variables will receive a significant update and care for all the related shortcomings in InDesign.
