# how to create a side caption without Figure number?

I am a very new Latex beginner. I would like to create a figure with side caption. However I would like to omit the "Figure" text inserted by default from Latex. For example, with the below code, I could produce the below figure. But I don't want the word "Figure 1.2" appears in the caption. How would you do that ? Many thanks

\documentclass[12pt]{report}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{sidecap}

\begin{document}

\begin{SCfigure}
%\centering
\caption {my caption text}
\includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]    {myfigure}
\end{SCfigure}

\end{document}


• Do you want only the phrase "my caption text" but not the rest of the caption? – koleygr Oct 16 '17 at 2:19
• Yes. I only want to delete "Figure 1.2" words, and keep "my caption text" – N.T.C Oct 16 '17 at 2:22

I have figured it out: I used \usepackage{caption} and use command \caption*{text here} that would solve the problem. Cheers.
• Not only does \caption* not produce the word "Figure", it doesn't increment the figure-counter either, so any following numbered figures are numbered correctly. – Rosie F Feb 22 '19 at 18:02
