# Abbreviate “figure” [duplicate]

Change caption name of figures

I'm using scrbook for the document class. Is there an easy way to abbreviate "Figure 1" in order to have "Fig. 1" ? The proposed answer didn't solve it, see a MWE below:

\documentclass[12pt,oneside,ngerman,toc=bibliographynumbered,toc=flat]{scrbook}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{babel}
\renewcommand\figurename{Fig.}
\makeatother
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\caption{\textbf{\label{fig:Verlaufsformen-der-MS}Verlaufsformen der MS als graphische Abbildung nach Lublin und Reingold 1996}}
\end{figure}
\end{document}

With babel, use \addto\captionsngerman{\renewcommand\figurename{Fig.}}. See my answer in the question linked above as "Possible Duplicate". –  lockstep Feb 9 '12 at 20:45
Gorgeous, I didn't get the "captionsngerman"-thing, but now it works. Can I accept this as the correct answer? Thanks. –  Jan Feb 9 '12 at 20:47
@Jan: I think so, since voting on closed questions are still possible. –  Werner Feb 9 '12 at 21:13
