This question already has an answer here:

How can set two images in one line without using a table, but having a caption and a label for each image? Besides image one should be labeled Figure 1 and the second figure with Figure 2. Therefore I want the following construction:

**************     *******************
*            *     *                 *
*            *     *                 *
**************     *******************
Figure 1: Caption  Figure 2: Caption

I tried already subfigure:


But this made (a) and (b) and one number for both figures.

Furthermore I tried:

\begin{tabular}{p{7cm} p{7cm}}
\caption{caption one}
\end{center} & \begin{center}
\caption{caption two}
\end{center} \\ 

But here the the columns are labeld with Table 1 and Table 2.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


Depending how you'd like the other figures in your document to be presented, you could simply redefine the caption for the subfigures as follows (based on this website):



\renewcommand{\thesubfigure}{Figure \arabic{subfigure}}
\captionsetup[subfigure]{labelformat=simple, labelsep=colon}
%\captionsetup[subfigure]{labelformat=parens, labelsep=colon}






enter image description here

  • That won't work for me. I get the following error: No counter 'subfigure@save' defined. \subfloat – Irgendw Pointer Jan 28 '14 at 15:50

    Can you compile the MWE? When I look for the error message on google I find that it seems to happen when you use subcaption and subfigtogether: latex-community.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=23576 – Habi Jan 29 '14 at 9:01
