# Can the package “caption” be used with KOMAScript classes?

Is the `LaTeX`-package `caption` compatible with `KOMAscript`-classes like `scrreprt`?

(I did not find anything about that in the KOMAscript-Manual, but as KOMAscript redefines a lot for the floats and captions, I wonder if there might be problems.)

See section 5.4 of the caption manual for an overview of the interplay between `KOMA-script` and `caption`. Quoting the "Side effects":
The optional argument of `\setcapwidth` is not supported and will be ignored if used in conjunction with the `caption` package. Furthermore the `KOMA-Script` options `tablecaptionabove` & `tablecaptionbelow` and the commands `\captionabove` & `\captionbelow` are stronger than the `position=` setting offered by the `caption` package.
