I have already read some similar qustions, but the solution over there does not work if I add the 'babel' package. The thing is change the autorefname of one specific, say Figure, and I just want to change the way that it is written, say capital case. Everything is fine but if I uncomment the package babel, so the command is ignored.



As shown in \autoref{fig:foo}~\dots

probably is a easy questions, but I don't find it.

Sorry, but it doesn't work, I have already seen the example in the manual, and it works perfectly, but changing the language as well as the command extrasngerman by captionsenglish, it does not. – Gitano Jan 22 '13 at 16:22
Answer fixed: \extrasenglish instead of \captionsenglish. – Heiko Oberdiek Jan 22 '13 at 16:33
