The Neptune LogoNEPTUNE

Figures, display figures and inline figures

The default figure inclusion command in LATEX, \includegraphics shall be used for inclusion of graphic material. All options like width, height, rotation to arbitrary angles, trim, clip, scale (down or up), and all other options will work as one would expect.

NEPTUNE does not support any other graphic inclusion command at this point in time.

The default {figure} environment in LATEX with all options will work correctly and can be used in NEPTUNE. E.g.,

  \begin{figure}[<options>]
   \caption{ ... }
   \xlabel{<label>}
   \includegraphics[<options>]{<figure file name>}
  \end{figure}

The starred variant ({figure*}) shall be used when large-sized graphic materials have to be included in a two-column page layout.

Sub-figures shall be tagged with the command \subfloat. A typical example with usage explanation is provided below:

  \begin{figure}[t]%4
  \caption{Result of the measurement of channels 1--8.\xlabel{fig:DNL}}
    \subfloat[Channel 1.]{\includegraphics{gr4a}\xlabel{fig:DNLa}}
    \subfloat[Channel 2.]{\includegraphics{gr4b}\xlabel{fig:DNLb}}
   \break
    \subfloat[Channel 3.]{\includegraphics{gr4c}\xlabel{fig:DNLc}}
    \subfloat[Channel 4.]{\includegraphics{gr4d}\xlabel{fig:DNLd}}
   \break
    \subfloat[Channel 5.]{\includegraphics{gr4e}\xlabel{fig:DNLe}}
    \subfloat[Channel 6.]{\includegraphics{gr4f}\xlabel{fig:DNLf}}
   \break
    \subfloat[Channel 7.]{\includegraphics{gr4g}\xlabel{fig:DNLg}}
    \subfloat[Channel 8.]{\includegraphics{gr4h}\xlabel{fig:DNLh}}
  \end{figure}

The syntax of \subfloat command is:

  \subfloat[<optional sub caption>]{<fig inclusion command>}

The sub-figures will be arranged horizontally and \break command shall be used to break the line to arrange remaining figures in another line.

The {figure} environment shall be used to wrap up all sub-figures. The starred variant ({figure*}) shall be used in a two-column page.

Additionally, there are two more types of figures used: (1) display figures and (2) inline figures.

  • Display figure: A non-floating figure without caption shall be provided as:
         \begin{dfigure}
             \includegraphics[<options>]{<figure file name>}
         \end{dfigure}
    
  • Inline figure: \infig with file name shall be used to insert inline graphic material.
         \infig{<figure file name>}
