  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem. Aug 7, 2018 at 18:22

You can use \captionsetup[sub]{...} to change the properties of subcaptions:

enter image description here


% Configure main captions
\captionsetup     {labelfont={rm,md,bf},textfont={rm,md,sl}}
% Configure subcaptions
\captionsetup[sub]{labelfont={rm,md   },textfont={rm,md,sl}}


    \caption{bla 1}
    \caption{bla 2}
