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



 \caption {my caption text}
 \includegraphics[width=0.5\textwidth]    {myfigure}


enter image description here

  • Do you want only the phrase "my caption text" but not the rest of the caption?

  • Yes. I only want to delete "Figure 1.2" words, and keep "my caption text"

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.
