[Tex/LaTex] Change the baselinestretch (line spacing) only for figure captions


I use


in my preamble to change line spacing of my main text. For my Figure cpations I'd like to have a value of 1.0 or 1.2. Is there an easy way to change the line-spacing for figure captions, table captions,… independently?

You can use caption package together with setspace package. This is what caption documentation says:

Further, you can use setspace package to adjust spacing for the whole document by using the commands it provides as noted by egreg.

A MWE will be:

\captionsetup[table]{font={stretch=1.2}}     %% change 1.2 as you like
\captionsetup[figure]{font={stretch=1.2}}    %% change 1.2 as you like
 %% or
 %% \captionsetup{font={stretch=1.2}}  %% this affects both figure and table
