## IEEEtran class

Just a short note for people who are writing a paper using Latex template from IEEE. If you have a problem formatting your paper, you may be able to find the answers from this great web site: http://www.michaelshell.org/tex/ieeetran/

For example, I have a problem that the caption of a figure is not centered, although the figure itself is centered. I was using exactly the latex code from the IEEE template. If I added \usepackage{caption}, the figure’s caption was then centered but there was an extra word “figure” on the next line after the figure. Besides, the caption of other entities such as a table was changed.

The solution is to put “\centerfigcaptionstrue” before the \caption command as illustrated by an example below. Note that I am using IEEEtran.cls version 1.6.

\begin{figure}[ht]
\centering
\includegraphics[width=3.5in]{MyFigureFileName}
\centerfigcaptionstrue
\caption{The is the caption of MyFigureFileName.}
\label{fig:MyFigureFileNameLabel}
\end{figure}
