I am using the svjour3 class to submit a tex document to a Springer journal. In this class, table captions appear like this:
Table 1 An example of a Table caption
If I use longtable however, I get captions like this:
Table 2: An example of a Longtable caption
How can I make longtable captions consistent with the table captions of svjour3? I.e., I would like the latter example to appear like so:
Table 2 An example of a Longtable caption
that is, use boldface and remove the ":".
Since this is going to be sent for review, it is also important that whatever change I do is for longtables only, and does not mess with Springer's document class.
EDIT: I just found out that if I add this to the preamble does the job:
This changes the other captions as well, making them however exactly the same as the original ones from the document class. Given that I'm submitting this to a journal, is it a good idea to go with that solution?
