I am presently using classic thesis. In the figures and tables, the captions has default indentation, i.e. long captions 'hang' under the first line of the text. But I wish to have normal paragraph text as caption. So in the classicthesis-config.tex file I changed \captionsetup{format=hang,font=small} to \captionsetup{format=default,font=small}. But still I am getting hanging captions. What else should I modify? Here is a sample code.

    \documentclass[ oneside,paper=a4,fontsize=12pt
            ]{scrreprt}
    \input{classicthesis-config}
    \begin{document}
    \begin{figure}
    \includegraphics[width=.45\linewidth]{example_4}
    \caption[Tu duo titulo debitas latente]{A view of differnet objects in the world. The first flower indiacates its orientation about the sky A view of the obejects .}\label{fig:example}
  \end{figure}

 \end{document}

This results in a caption hanging around the first line with indentation. enter image description here

    Welcome to TeX.SX! The classicthesis-config.tex file should be a skeleton for further personalization and in general should not be loaded as such. Can you prepare a small example of code showing the issue? – egreg Feb 25 '17 at 18:12
  • And where do you load the package? Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Marco Daniel Feb 25 '17 at 18:59
  • Thanks egreg and Macro. I'll edit the post again to work with the issue. – Jerry Feb 25 '17 at 19:11

File classicthesis-config.tex load package caption for which is set \captionsetup{font=small}. This you can change with new \captionsetup{...} placed after classicthesis-config.tex. For example:

\captionsetup{format=plain, font=small, labelfont=bf}

will gives format similar to

For other desired caption layout see documentation of caption package. Complete example:

\documentclass[oneside, paper=a4, fontsize=12pt]{scrreprt}
\input{classicthesis-config}
\captionsetup{format=plain, font=small, labelfont=bf}

\begin{document}
    \begin{figure}
\includegraphics[width=.45\linewidth]{example-image-a}
\caption[Tu duo titulo debitas latente]{A view of differnet objects in the world. The first flower indiacates its orientation about the sky A view of the obejects .}\label{fig:example}
    \end{figure}
\end{document}
  • classicthesis-config isn't a package. The package is classicthesis which isn't loaded yet. It's a single tex file which has to be saved in your working directory. The file classicthesis-config.tex is part of the documentation. You can run ls /usr/local/texlive/2016/texmf-dist/doc/latex/classicthesis – Marco Daniel Feb 25 '17 at 19:33
  • @MarcoDaniel, thank you for pointing me to wrong used term. Corrected. – Zarko Feb 25 '17 at 19:35
  • I edited my comment. Using the file classicthesis-config doesn't mean that your are using classicthesis ;-) – Marco Daniel Feb 25 '17 at 19:39
  • It works! Came to know where I got wrong. – Jerry Feb 25 '17 at 20:04
  • @Jerry, if answer is useful to you, you can vote for it and even accept it :) – Zarko Feb 25 '17 at 20:16
