# How can I left align the text in the figure/table caption?

How can I left align the text in the figure/table caption? This is the text I am using to add an image

\begin{figure}[htbp]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=0.90\textwidth]{Figures/EdgeYarnA9}
\caption[abc]{abc}
\label{fig:EdgeYarnA9}
\end{figure}

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that shows your document class and relevant packages. –  lockstep Mar 25 '13 at 13:46

If you can get used to specifying figures with commands, rather than environments, boxhandler will solve this, assuming you mean left-align to the figure and not the margin. (It can left align to margin, too, but you don't need boxhandler for just that)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{boxhandler}
\begin{document}

By default, boxhandler gives this

\bxfigure[ht]{This is the caption which, by default is idented wrt the
figure identifier}
{\rule{3in}{2in}}

But by changing the caption style with \verb|\captionStyle{n}{l}|, one
gets the following:

\captionStyle{n}{l}

\bxfigure[ht]{This is the caption which, by default is idented wrt the
figure identifier}
{\rule{3in}{2in}}

\end{document}
