Hi.  I'm sorry if this is not the right forum to ask this question.   
You may direct me to the right forum.

A journal wants the figure label in the caption to be in bold, but  
the reference to the figure in normal text.  I can accomplish the  
former by editing "article.cls"

   change   \renewcommand \thefigure {\@arabic\c at figure}
   to       \renewcommand \thefigure {\textbf{\@arabic\c at figure}}

   change   \newcommand\figurename{Figure}
   to       \newcommand\figurename{\textbf{Figure}}

But then, when I use \ref, the figure number in the text is in bold  
also.  How do I get out of this dilemma?

(I receive the digest, so a Cc would be appreciated.  Thanks.)
