I am a novice and have started using latex for writing my dissertation. Some of my figures are long and might extend over to multiple pages. I need only a single caption and figure number(i.e. no sub-figure numbers). The thesis office however requires me to put the caption on the first page(Fig.xx Title), and on subsequent pages, I need to put Fig.xx Continued. How can I do this?

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. You might also want to add to your question how you're including the pdfs etc. – Aradnix Oct 16 '14 at 16:39

  • How do you plan to split up a multipage figure? Crop images into sections? Anyway, the primary function of the \caption command is to number the figures. If all you want to to write a caption, just write something (centered). After the \caption you can use \thefigure to number it. Before the \caption you will need to \stepcounter{figure} \thefigure \addtocounter{figure}{-1}. – John Kormylo Oct 16 '14 at 17:02
