I'm wondering if it is possible to show a two column figure in a page where another figure has already been displayed. In other words, I didn't want to spawn the two column figure to a new page.

I tried that:

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}

\usepackage{stfloats}
\usepackage{subcaption}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[htpb]
\centering
\subcaptionbox{Fig A1}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.48\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\subcaptionbox{Fig A2}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.48\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\subcaptionbox{Fig A2}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.48\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\caption{Figure A}  
\end{figure}

\begin{figure}[htpb]
\centering
\subcaptionbox{Fig B1}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.48\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\subcaptionbox{Fig B2}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.48\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\subcaptionbox{Fig B2}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.48\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\caption{Figure B}
\end{figure}

\begin{figure*}[!b]
\centering
\subcaptionbox{Fig C1}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.3\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\subcaptionbox{Fig C2}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.3\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\subcaptionbox{Fig C2}
    {\includegraphics[width=0.3\columnwidth]{teste}} \hfill
\caption{Figure C}
\end{figure*}

\end{document}

Which results in:

I would like to have them in one single page, since they fit together.

Thank you.

  • Your floats are to big to be placed on one page. According to (La)TeX rules, the float, exception is [p] option, can occupy a fraction of page. This can be changed, but why you not put all pictures in one float? i this case all will be keep together. In one float you can use more captions, if this is matter. – Zarko Nov 7 '14 at 20:36
