is it possible to remove numbering at figures? I am happy to have numbering in an article, but I would like to remove it from the appendix.

Add the following


in the preamble and use \caption* where you do not want Figure numbering.

\caption*{Here is a caption}

Thanks a lot! I was thinking that caption* might work, but without the usepackage it sure did not:-) However since it is an article for a jurnal, I had an error that the usepackage is not supported. If I have: \documentclass[epjCONF]{svjour} do you have a solution as well? If not I will just ask them how they want to publish it... – Cunik16 Sep 6 '12 at 10:38
