I'm using the \caption command inside \begin{table} command and in the output I'm getting:

Table 4.1 - Caption
    Table Content

Is it possible to change that style to something like this?

                    *Table 4.1*
    **Caption**
   Table Content 

The word "Table" and its number should be at the right side of page and in italic, the caption should be centered and bold.

PS

\usepackage{caption}
\DeclareCaptionFormat{hfillstart}{\hfill#1#2#3\par}
\captionsetup[table]{format=hfillstart,labelsep=newline,justification=centering}

\usepackage{floatrow}
\floatsetup[table]{capposition=top}

I have used this code from link below. How to change it to make Table italic, and caption bold?

  • See the caption2 package for such customisations. Nov 5, 2012 at 11:12

    @AndrewSwann The caption2 package is obsolete. One should use caption or floatrow; the latter builds upon the former.

  • @egreg You are perfectly right - a few years ago it used to be the other way around... Nov 5, 2012 at 12:22

You're almost there:

\usepackage{caption}
\DeclareCaptionFormat{hfillstart}{\hfill#1#2#3\par}
\DeclareCaptionFont{mdit}{\mdseries\itshape}
\captionsetup[table]{
  format=hfillstart,
  labelsep=newline,
  justification=centering,
  font=bf,
  labelfont=mdit,
}
\usepackage{floatrow}
\floatsetup[table]{capposition=top}

I'm not too much convinced about boldface captions, though.

  • It's not necessary to declare a new mdit font; simply use the labelfont and textfont keys.

  • @lockstep Right, but it may be useful to have also this possibility, so the two parts can share some setting.

  • what do #1#2#3 in \DeclareCaptionFormat{hfillstart}{\hfill#1#2#3\par} refer to?

    @Viesturs The package documentation specifies that #1 refers to the caption label, #2 to the separator and #3 to the caption text.

It's not clear to me whether your "Table italic" refers to the "Table XXX" label in the table's caption or to the body of the table:

  • In the first case, add labelfont=it,textfont=bf to the argument of \captionsetup.

  • In the second case, add font=bf to the argument of \captionsetup and font=it to the argument of \floatsetup.

See section 2.3 of the caption manual and section 3.1.2 of the floatrow manual for details.
