comment Installing mwe package
Note - you have to have the files that 'tex ydoc.dtx' generates in the same folder as mwe.ins before running 'latex mwe.ins'.

comment Can't get this caption right (wrapfig + floatrow)
@HarishKumar I'm sorry, so I still don't understand then how I would make the caption the same width as the figure?

comment Can't get this caption right (wrapfig + floatrow)
@HarishKumar I don't understand what this is doing. According to the floatrow doc, "But if you set, for example, the option [\FBwidth] like below, you’ll get a caption width equal to the width of picture". With \ffigbox[\FBwidth] and \includegraphics[width=.5\linewidth]{dummy}, the caption is much bigger than the figure. If I make it \ffigbox[.5\FBwidth] to match, then the figure gets even smaller, and the caption is still bigger than the figure. What is the relationship between these two width settings?

@HarishKumar So that is the question - how to get the caption to span only the figure width, whatever it may be?

@HarishKumar but then the image is also linewidth. I want to size my image to my liking, then have the text aligned to its edges below it.

@Harish Kumar I tried this (without the wrapfigure) and it lets the caption be much wider than the image: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{floatrow} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{wrapfig} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \ffigbox[\FBwidth] { \caption{caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text }\label{...} } { \includegraphics[width=.4\linewidth]{dummy} } \end{figure} \end{document}

@Werner I don't get it - you're saying to replace 'includegraphics' with 'rule'? I tried this but it doesn't build: \documentclass{article} \usepackage{floatrow} \usepackage{graphicx} \usepackage{wrapfig} \begin{document} \begin{figure} \ffigbox[\FBwidth] { \caption{caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text }\label{...} } { %\includegraphics[width=.4\linewidth]{dummy} \rule{.4\linewidth]{dummy} } \end{figure} \end{document}

comment How to limit the figure caption width?
Hadi Safi aghdam - that works, but it doesn't respect 'width' options of includegraphics. That is, the caption is much wider than the figure with something like this: \begin{figure} \ffigbox[\FBwidth] {\caption{caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text caption text }\label{...}} {\includegraphics[width=.4\linewidth]{dummy}} \end{figure}

comment Turn off equation numbers when using 'preview' package
From what I just read, \makeatletter is needed because @ is typically not allowed outside of a package, and @ is usually needed to override functionality inside of a package. Is it not necessary to know which package eqnswtrue/false come from? Googling for those didn't turn up any hits - what do they stand for? eqn = equation obviously, but what about "swtrue"?

Thanks. Is there a difference between using Image Magick and that gs command that I has posted?

Ah it's that easy! I guess assumed it was already in a figure environment. Thanks.
