# Figure with caption within an itemize list not indenting correctly

I'm trying to put an image with a caption on it within an itemize environment (within another itemize environment). When I had the image with no caption, simply using \includegraphics, it indented to the same level as the other elements of the itemize list. However, when I wrapped it in a figure environment because I wanted a caption, it is indented to the left margin, completely sticking out of the list.

Here's what I've got:

\begin{itemize}
\item Describing large-scale processor activity.

\item To discuss digital systems of this scale and level of complexity
we need a number of descriptive tools.

\item For example:

\begin{itemize}
\item[a)] Circuit schematics highlight the circuit components and
their connectivity.

\begin{figure}[h]

\includegraphics[width=10cm{assets/fig001.png}
\caption{Transfer from R1 to R2 whenK1=1}
\end{figure}
\item[b)] Timing diagrams highlight the detailed time sequence of
transfer between registers

\includegraphics[width=10cm]{assets/fig002.png}

\end{itemize}
\end{itemize}


Here's the result:

I've tried h, h! and H in the figure positioning, but it stays exactly where it is.

TL;DR: How can I have the first image here indented like the second, but with a caption?

Don't use a floating environment (such as figure) if you want your image to appear in the exact position where you write it. You can use a minipage and, if a caption is required, the \captionof command (provided by the capt-of package or by the caption package).

In the following example I illustrate this approach; I also used the enumitem package to customize the labels for the inner list:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}% demo option just for the example
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\begin{document}

\begin{itemize}
\item Describing large-scale processor activity.
\item To discuss digital systems of this scale and level of complexity
we need a number of descriptive tools.
\item For example:
\begin{enumerate}[label=\alph*)]
\item Circuit schematics highlight the circuit components and
their connectivity.\par
\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=10cm]{assets/fig001.png}
\captionof{figure}{Transfer from R1 to R2 whenK1=1}
\end{minipage}
\item Timing diagrams highlight the detailed time sequence of
transfer between registers.\par
\includegraphics[width=10cm]{assets/fig002.png}
\end{enumerate}
\end{itemize}

\end{document}

That looks perfect, thanks –  luigii May 5 '12 at 2:55
