I have a pretty long document with lots of figures. So far, I have had all captions on top, for both tables and figures, and that's how they are placed in the code.

Now, I want to change the figure captions to be below the corresponding figures without having to change each individual figure in the code, while leaving tables the way they are. I have read that the floatrow package can do this, and so I started looking into it. For regular figures, this works fine, but I'm also using subfigures generated with the subcaption command, and there, floatrow doesn't seem to have an effect.

Is it possible to have floatrow also affect the placement of captions (above or below) generated with the subcaption package - or is there some other, more lightweight package that can take care of this? Floatrow is a really extensive package, and I'm really only interested in changing the top vs. bottom issue of the caption placement.

    If you use \subcaptionbox (offered by the subcaption package as well) the position of the caption can be simply altered by package option. – Axel Sommerfeldt Nov 26 '16 at 20:00
  • That was an excellent hint. With the help of egregs answer here tex.stackexchange.com/questions/81953/… I was able to come to a very satisfying resolution! – carsten Nov 28 '16 at 14:58
