When I create the tables, the front of the table caption was too small than the others, I don't know how to solve this problem? Does someone know this?

  • Welcome to the site! These things are typically configured via the document class and/or packages, so without a complete minimal working example, it is difficult to help you.

  • No, I am not going to another site to edit code for you. If you want help here, I suggest that you post a complete example here.

  • I re-edit the code and post the example, Could you fix this?

  • The class (which is not standard, but I think I found while searching) has a \footnotesize inside its definition of \@tablecaption. This can probably be patched (see tex.stackexchange.com/q/152773/52406), but I don't know how to do that properly.

To long for the comment

  • I suppose, that you like to publish your article in journal, which use frontiers_suppmat document class
  • This document class is designed so that article used it will meet their formatting requirements. Apparently they assure this with hardwired styles, so don't try to change caption style. They will take a care for final looks of artice.

Off-topic: I do not know the context of your table, however you may liked the following its design:

As you can see, the document preamble I reorganized (hyperref should be loaded last). Added are two packages: makecell and siunitx, which enables better column headers formatting and aligning numbers at decimal points.

  • Thank you very much for your guidance, this is indeed the format I was looking for, but I think your suggestion is very good.
