Under \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}, whenever I include a caption under a figure, right below the caption, the text 'figure' is printed. This does not happen under \documentclass{article}. Running the following code, I get the problem:


\caption{Caption here.}


Here's a screenshot of the problem: problem

This is the format suggested here. Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: You can use backticks ` to mark your inline code as I did in my edit. I am not sure I see what you mean, would you mind including a screen shot in your question? – Corentin Feb 19 '13 at 16:46
I don't see a problem after using \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}. – Werner Feb 19 '13 at 17:02
It's very possible that the issue depends on packages or macros you load; please add a minimal preamble that still shows the problem. – egreg Feb 19 '13 at 18:20
Sorry, but this doesn't show the problem, at least on my machine. However, the package caption is not recommended with IEEEtran. – egreg Feb 19 '13 at 21:28
@egreg Interesting, thanks for running it; I'll just have to run it on another machine. – huehue Feb 19 '13 at 21:34
