Changing Figure Labelling in LyX

To whomever this may concern,

I have recently started using LyX to write scientific papers for my undergraduate degree. In writing one of my reports, I found myself wanting to change the way the figures are labelled. I have managed to change the figure labelling from "Figure 1, Figure 2, Figure 3..." to labelling per section "Figure 1.1, Figure 1.2, Figure 2.1..." However, I was wondering if there was a way to change it to say "Fig. 1.1", instead of "Figure 1.1"

I've also changed the size of the font inside the caption to be smallest. This works great, no issues. However, the figure label itself does not change in size. It simply shows "Figure 1.1: Blah Blah Blah, this is only an example...". Is there a way to make the size of the label match that of the caption.

Thank in advance to anyone who can help me.
