How to change the space between figures and captions
Version: 2.x, 3.x, 4.x, 5.x - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
LaTeX defines the space above and below the captions of floating objects (both graphics and tables) with the macros \abovecaptionskip and \belowcaptionskip. Many typesetting specifications use these macros, including sebase.cls, which defines each value as 10 pt.
Although the Style Editor doesn't provide a method for changing these values, you can alter the space between floating objects and their captions. You can add an external macro that is associated with the typesetting specifications for your document. Alternatively, you can change the spacing for all floating objects in a document by modifying the document preamble, or you can change the spacing for an individual floating object by placing TeX commands before and after the object.

You may need to experiment with the values in the commands to achieve the spacing you want.
Follow these instructions to change caption spacing for an individual floating object:
