comment Trouble changing font size in figure legends
@egreg You can change the font for "Figure 1" and "This is an ..." individually, eg. setting \textCapTitFont to {{footnotesize#1} and \Captionfont` to \Large. Or am I still missing something?

@egreg It seems I missed something. But the fontsize in caption is changed to \small. The setting of \sffamily can be omitted.
