I'm using LYX. I am placing figures and tables in floats and using a minibox to provide the captions for each.

However, in some cases there is a big white space between the table and its caption. Can I somehow decrease it or remove? How can I control the distance between the caption and figures/ tables in LYX?

One thing that might work is the \vspace{-1in} command before the minibox that holds the caption but after you make the float.

If that doesn't work, try placing the \vspace{} command inside the minibox declaration. That being said, I'm not familiar with LyX and it seems like the graphical interface they provide might prevent you from doing this easily.
