I'm writing a document and I want to keep it simple. Probably there won't be any ToC or any List of figures so below each figure I just want the name of the figure to be mentioned and nothing else. Like: Figure 1.1: bla bla bla without the "Figure 1.1"

Is that possible?

  • Please post a Minimal Working Example people can compile. That will help people to help you (and make it more likely they will!).

    Even without any ToC or so, it is much better to say e.g. "Figure 1 shows ..." than to be talking about "The next-to-last figure illustrates ..."

Use the caption package with the option labelformat = empty (see page 6 of the manual):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[labelformat = empty]{caption}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\rule{5cm}{1cm}
\caption{Something.}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

output

You can also use the starred version of \caption, i.e. \caption*, and then you don't need to parse the option to the package:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{caption}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\rule{5cm}{1cm}
\caption*{Something.}
\end{figure}

\end{document}
