# changing caption for wrapfigure

I am using wrapfigure to include both a table and a picture. However, because it's in wrapfigure, the table caption comes out labeled as "Figure X" rather than table x.

Is there any way I can get around this?

Thank you! Here's a snippet of my direct code!

\begin{wrapfigure}{l}{8.5cm}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|}
\hline
Cluster  & Start & End & Muts. in Cluster & P-Value    \\ \hline
1 & 751   & 858 & 4 & 1.35E-04 \\
2 & 719   & 751 & 2 & 2.41E-03 \\
3 & 790   & 858 & 2 & 2.82E-03 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{The three most significant clusters found in EGFR for the 2GS7 structure.}
\label{tab:EGFRClust}

\includegraphics[width = 0.5\textwidth]{EGFRDrawing.eps}
\caption{The 2GS7 structure color coded by region: 1) cluster 1 - orange, 2) cluster 2 - blue and 3) cluster 3 - yellow. The boundary $\alpha$-carbon amino acids of 719, 751, 768, 790 and 858 are shown as purple spheres.}
\label{fig:EGFR-2GS7}
\end{wrapfigure}

• use the capt-of package then \captionof{table}{The three....}  will give you a table caption. – David Carlisle Apr 2 '13 at 20:32
• Thank you, your suggestion (as well as the answer below) worked great. – user1357015 Apr 2 '13 at 21:46

You can use the \captionof command provided either by the capt-of or the caption packages:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{capt-of}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\begin{document}

\begin{wrapfigure}{l}{8.5cm}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|}
\hline
Cluster  & Start & End & Muts. in Cluster & P-Value    \\ \hline
1 & 751   & 858 & 4 & 1.35E-04 \\
2 & 719   & 751 & 2 & 2.41E-03 \\
3 & 790   & 858 & 2 & 2.82E-03 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\captionof{table}{The three most significant clusters found in EGFR for the 2GS7 structure.}
\label{tab:EGFRClust}

\includegraphics[width = 0.5\textwidth]{EGFRDrawing.eps}
\captionof{figure}{The 2GS7 structure color coded by region: 1) cluster 1 - orange, 2) cluster 2 - blue and 3) cluster 3 - yellow. The boundary $\alpha$-carbon amino acids of 719, 751, 768, 790 and 858 are shown as purple spheres.}
\label{fig:EGFR-2GS7}
\end{wrapfigure}

\end{document}


The demo option for graphicx simply replaces actual figures with black rectangles; do not use that option in your actual document.

• Perfect, exactly what I needed. – user1357015 Apr 2 '13 at 21:47
• Hmm, when I try \captionof{table}{tablecaption} in my file in a wrapfigure below a tabular, I get 'Figure 1: tablecaption' as the output. When I put it at the top, I get an error: Extra }, or forgotten \endgroup.. – equaeghe Aug 5 '13 at 19:32
• @equaeghe Almost impossible to detect the problem without the offending code. Feel free to open a new question with this issue, and make sure to provide there a MWE allowing to reproduce the problem mentioned. – Gonzalo Medina Aug 5 '13 at 21:34
