I've tried to accomplish this for some time with the caption package, but with no result. What I want to do is change the following:

Figure 1: text


Figure-1: text

I.e. replace the space with a dash.

  • Is the "dash" symbol supposed to be a "simple" dash, i.e., a hyphen character, or an "en-dash"?
