fig. 1 instead Figure 1:

Postby Lumy » Tue Jan 06, 2009 2:48 pm

Hello,

Is there a way to write

fig. 1 instead Figure 1:?

"f" lower case, and no ":"

How?

Thank you for help.

Have a look at the caption package. It lets you customize float captions in many ways.
\usepackage[font=small,labelfont=bf,labelsep=space]{caption}
\captionsetup{%
  figurename=fig.,
  tablename=tab.
}

More capabilities of this package are described in its manual.
