If I use

\ctable[caption = \textbf{something}]{}{}{}

the text inside the caption is bold but TABLE 1. is not ... It looks like this:

TABLE 1: something

and i would like

TABLE 1: something

You can increase your chance for good (and quick) answers if you add a complete but minimal example to your question. – Thorsten Donig Apr 29 '12 at 9:51

You could use the caption package and set \captionsetup[table]{font=bf,position=below} to get bold label and caption text. The position=below is necessary to get the right spacing of the caption.


This is a row of text, so we can see the whitespace around the table

caption = Centered,pos=hbtp!
]{cc}{}{\FL Table's first row & Second column\LL}

+1 for position=below. – lockstep Apr 29 '12 at 9:56

If you don't like to use the caption package, for example in case in would interfere with ctable somehow (ctable is not mentioned in the caption documentation), you could redefine the macro which prints the caption and is usually defined by the class. A small example:

Use this in the Preamble

\usepackage[labelfont=bf]{caption} %% for the figure and Tables Catption%%
\usepackage[textfont=bf]{caption}   %% For the Text of the figures and Tables%%

And what does this? Please add that information to your answer! BTW: Welcome to TeX.SE! – Kurt Oct 26 '14 at 10:49
