When leaving the caption empty, I get something like "Figure 11-". How do I remove all the dashes "-" from empty captions.

\usepackage{chngcntr}  % continuous figure number


\coordinate (A) at (3,9);
\coordinate (B) at (2,6);
\draw (A)--(B);

    Welcome to TeX.SX! 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}. – Phelype Oleinik Nov 7 '18 at 15:29

  • Just like Bernhard has commented above: \usepackage{caption} is sufficient to solve this problem. No need for the \captionsetup[figure]{...} line. – user2574 Nov 7 '18 at 22:01
  • @Any The caption package is compatible to the float package. – user2574 Nov 7 '18 at 22:02
