I am unable to find a method to place the caption of a table to the right or left of this specific table. Does anyone know if there is a way to do this in plain TEX or Koma Script (eventually in conjunction with the tabularx environment)?

  • I am not referring to justification of the caption above or below a table. I am referring to placing the caption text on the left side of a table, sensu the Koma Script \captionbeside command. I cannot get this command to work for tables, hence my question here. – user42387 Dec 8 '13 at 15:25

You can use the floatrow package: choose something like


in the preamble, and use this syntax for a particular figure to have a side caption:

   \fcapside{\caption{Test for side caption}\label{sic}}

See § 1.1.1 and §§ 3.1.3 to 3.1.7 of the doc for further details about captions.

  • +1 if you can show how that works for a table rather than a figure, per the OP. – jvriesem Jun 9 '17 at 18:55
  • @jvriesem: How do you know I'm still alive? – Bernard Jun 9 '17 at 18:58
  • I don't, of course. I'll give +1 to your account, however, if you---or whatever person/robot/entity controls your account---make the change I suggested. ;-) – jvriesem Jun 9 '17 at 19:02
