I am making a beamer presentation of someone else's research paper (so I don't have the original tex code). I am using pdfs of the tables in the presentation but wanted to cut out all of the original captions, which can be a bit wordy for a slideshow, and simply label them with either "Table X" or "Figure X" along with the title.

So I'd like to suppress automatically inserted caption label. If I put the title/label without the \caption{} function, then I have to fight with word wrapping.

There's a site for Tex and LaTeX questions, you're probably more successful there -- – Daniel Beck Sep 20 '10 at 3:53
