Positioning - How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? To answer this question one has to first understand the basic rules that govern LaTeX's standard placement of floats.

positioning - How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?

Once these are understood, adjustments can be made, for example, by modifying float parameters, or by adding certain packages that modify or extend the basic functionality. LaTeX floats terminology Float classes Each float in LaTeX belongs to a class. By default, LaTeX knows about two classes, viz., figureand table. One important aspect of the float placement algorithm is that LaTeX never violates the order of placement within a class of floats.

Float areas LaTeX knows about 2 float areas within a column where it can place floats: the top area and the bottom area of the column. In addition, LaTeX can make float columns and float pages, i.e, columns and pages which contain only floats. Formatting LaTeX Articles for Biology Journals. Compared to other fields, one may have additional hassles submitting a LaTeX article to a journal in the field of biology.

Formatting LaTeX Articles for Biology Journals

Not only the journal may not have a template or accept LaTeX submissions, they may also ask for a very specific text layout. Here, I will explain how to put your article to meet some of these requirements based on my recent experience on submissions to the Journal of Neuroscience and Neuroinformatics. In this article, I first review the major hurdles I had to pass and then will list a few minor issues as well. And, finally, I have some notes on the submission process. Some of the formatting requirements implied major changes to the way the document looked.

Figures Figures need a slightly different treatment in biology journals than LaTeX defaults. Subfigure labels Manuscripts often need figures with multiple panels. \usepackage{subfig} Using \subfloat with empty captions ([][]) allows to place only labels on the figure subpanels: A (a.eps) Figure 1. . #!

TeX Frequently Asked Questions

Beamer Theme Matrix. Creating and Post-Processing Mathematica Graphics on Mac OS X. Mathematica runs on many platforms, including Mac OS X. This page is written from a Mac OS X perspective, but if you're on a different platform you may still get some useful information here. In the past, I've also heavily used Mathematica on UNIX and Windows systems, and you shouldn't have any trouble adapting what I'm writing here to those other platforms. However, I have to leave that as an exercise for the reader. I'm trying to keep this page in step with changes in Mathematica, but the process of catching up with the most recent versions is still an ongoing effort. Of course, if you need real expert help, you could always check one of these resources: To obtain Mathematica through the University of Oregon site license, first check the information provided by IT Services .

LaTeX. This is a guide to the LaTeX markup language.


It is intended to form a useful resource for everybody from new users who wish to learn, to old hands who need a quick reference. TeX and LaTeX TeX is a computer program for typesetting documents, created by Donald Knuth. It takes a suitably prepared computer file and converts it to a form which may be printed on many kinds of printers, including dot-matrix printers, laser printers and high-resolution typesetting machines. LaTeX is a set of macros for TeX that aims at reducing the user's task to the sole role of writing the content, LaTeX taking care of all the formatting process. The book is organized in different parts. Getting Started will provide you with the very first steps to print your first document: general concepts (very important!)

This is my first time here, and I have this question: I'm writing my thesis, that includes many tables and figures in a float environment, with the caption at the end of it.

Space after/before floats

I defined the space between the end of float's caption and the next paragraph. This works fine, but when I forced to stay when I tiped (with [h]), this space (between caption and next paragraph) is bigger. Of course, one of the items that will be evaluated, is the spaces (they all must be the same). So, my question is: How can I solve this? There is an example of the code I'm using: (TexShop —Mac Os 10.6.8) \documentclass[letterpaper,12pt,oneside]{book}\usepackage[spanish,es-lcroman]{babel}\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}\usepackage[font=small,format=hang,parskip=1pt]{caption}\usepackage{ctable}\usepackage{float}\raggedbottom\begin{document}\setlength{\textfloatsep}{10pt} \setlength{\abovecaptionskip}{10pt}\setlength{\belowcaptionskip}{5pt} ...
