# hvFloat: caption above and note below the object.

Using:

\hvFloat[%
floatPos=p,%
capWidth=1.3,%
capPos=b,%
rotAngle=90,%
objectPos=l]
{figure}{\includegraphics[width=\textheight, height=0.75\textwidth]{./Figur/resqrbd}}[Table caption]{Figure caption}{fig:resqrbd}


Any way I can add a note/description (like tnote in ctable) under the figure and have the caption on top (capPos = t)?

use it this way for notes:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{hvfloat, lipsum}

\begin{document}

\hvFloat[%
floatPos=p,
capWidth=1.3,
capPos=t,
rotAngle=90,
objectPos=l]
{figure}
{\parbox[t]{\textheight}{\centering%
\includegraphics[width=\textheight, height=0.75\textwidth]{./Figur/resqrbd}\\[5pt]
\parbox{0.7\linewidth}{\fontsize{8pt}{8.1pt}\selectfont text ... \lipsum\ text}}}
[Table caption]
{Figure caption}
{fig:resqrbd}

\end{document}

@Gonzalo Medina: thanks, code edited ... – Herbert Jun 8 '11 at 14:36
able to make the note 0.7\textwidth and centered under the figure? and less spacing between lines (i would like it similar to the tnote in ctable..) – latexmp Jun 8 '11 at 18:57
@latexmp: put the notes in another parbox – Herbert Jun 8 '11 at 19:44
sorry, can't figure out how to put the note in the parbox – latexmp Jun 8 '11 at 20:12
@latexmp: see edited example – Herbert Jun 8 '11 at 20:33

You can use a one-column tabular environment to wrap the figure (in the first row) and the note (in the second row). A little example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{hvfloat}
\usepackage{lipsum}% just to generate some text

\begin{document}

\hvFloat[%
floatPos=p,%
capWidth=1.3,%
capPos=t,%
rotAngle=90,%
objectPos=l]
{figure}
{
\begin{tabular}{c}
\includegraphics[width=0.9\textheight, height=0.7\textwidth]{cat}\\
\multicolumn{1}{c}{\parbox{0.7\textheight}{\fontsize{8}{8}\selectfont\lipsum[1]}}\end{tabular}
}
[Caption in ToC]{Figure caption}{fig:resqrbd}

\end{document}


The demo option for graphicx was only used to make my example compilable for everyone; do not use this option in your actual code.

@Gonzalo: Works great, but is there a way to make the "note" 0.7\textheight and centered? – latexmp Jun 8 '11 at 18:36
@latexmp: Sure. Use \multicolumn{1}{c}{\parbox{0.7\textheight}{\small\lipsum[1]}} in the second row of the tabular. With centered, do you mean the text must be centered or the note centered with regard to the table? – Gonzalo Medina Jun 8 '11 at 19:42
@Gonzalo: note centered – latexmp Jun 8 '11 at 20:04
@latexmp: then the suggestion in my previous comment will do the job. – Gonzalo Medina Jun 8 '11 at 20:08
@Gonzalo: yepp, thanks. – latexmp Jun 8 '11 at 20:15
