Chapter 6. Mastering Floats > 6.5. Controlling the float caption

6.5. Controlling the float caption

When you want to explain what is shown in your floating environment (figure or table in standard LaTeX), you normally use a \caption command. After introducing the basic syntax and explaining the (low-level) interfaces available with standard LaTeX, this section describes the powerful caption package, which offers a large number of customization possibilities for adjusting the caption layout to your needs. As shown in the examples it can be combined with all other packages described in this chapter.

We then examine the subfig and subfloat packages, which introduce substructures for float objects. The section concludes with a discussion of the sidecap package (placing captions beside the float body) and the fltpage package (for generating full-page floats whose captions are placed on the opposite page).
