# Multiline figure caption centering

How to center a figure caption that's too long for a single line? Or at least, make the text in other lines line-up with text after "Slika 1:". It currently looks like this

Use the caption package.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage[justification=centering]{caption}% or e.g. [format=hang]

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\rule{1cm}{1cm}
\caption{This caption is very long---in fact, it is so long that it doesn't fit on one line}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

• This doesn't work in beamer, any suggestions? May 26 '14 at 18:33
• I don't know about beamer, but I had a strange document class that also refused to give the correct output with \usepackage[justification=centering]{caption} and I simply used \\\centering in the caption text to get the desired output. Jul 15 '19 at 12:48
