Is it possible to break a figure block made by three subfigures in two lines? I would like to maintain the first subfigure on the first line and the other subfigures on the second line.

\begin{figure*}[t]
\centering
    \subfigure[sub1]{\includegraphics{path1}\label{fig:path1}}
    \subfigure[sub2]{\includegraphics{path2}\label{fig:path2}}
    \subfigure[sub3]{\includegraphics{path3}\label{fig:path3}}
\end{figure*}

    How are you producing the subfigures? Which package are you using? Anyway, you can use the standard break line command \\. – Gonzalo Medina Jul 24 '13 at 14:26
  • I updated the text and verified that your suggestion works pretty fine. Thanks. – Eleanore Jul 24 '13 at 14:31

Here is an example that uses the subcaption package and the threeparttable package for the tablenotes environment (environment not strictly necessary, as you could use simple text with \footnotesize)

\begin{figure}[t!p]
         \begin{subfigure}[b]{0.2\textwidth}
                 \centering
                 \includegraphics[width=0.98\textwidth]{coolcat}
                 \caption{Cool}
                 \label{fig2:coolcat}
         \end{subfigure}
         \begin{subfigure}[b]{0.4\textwidth}
                 \centering
                 \includegraphics[width=0.985\textwidth]{bossycat}
                 \caption{Bossy}
                 \label{fig2:bossycat}
         \end{subfigure}%
         \begin{subfigure}[b]{0.4\textwidth}
                 \centering
                 \includegraphics[width=0.98\textwidth]{frowningcat}
                 \caption{Reflective}
                 \label{fig2:frowningcat}
         \end{subfigure}
% leave a blank line to change row         

\begin{subfigure}[b]{0.31\textwidth} \centering \includegraphics[width=0.985\textwidth]{scaredbabycat} \caption{Scared} \label{fig2:scared} \end{subfigure} \begin{subfigure}[b]{0.69\textwidth} \centering \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{tiredcat} \caption{Tired} \label{fig2:tired} \end{subfigure} \begin{tablenotes} \item Images in the public domain. \end{tablenotes} \caption{Cats} \label{fig2} \end{figure}

This produces:

    @Pierre, it might be useful to list some other packages you might be using. I have not been able to reproduce the result. Thanks! – deps_stats Oct 23 '16 at 1:27
