[Tex/LaTex] Font size of figures and table captions


I need my figure and table captions to be of font size 8pt, how do I achieve this?

Best Answer

If you are using one of the standard classes (book, report, article) or a class compatible with the caption package, then you can declare your default font specification using \DeclareCaptionFont and then use this new declaration in \captionsetup:




\caption{The caption of the figure will be typeset using \texttt{8pt} font size}
Regular text.


The result:
