I'm trying to include a set of 8 figures into a single figure with subfigure, but they are too big to fit in one page all together, and they get cropped.

I want to keep them all in the same figure environment but in different pages so they preserve their size.

  • Which package do you use subcaption or subfig? – user11232 Nov 25 '14 at 23:31
  • One figure cannot span more than one page. However, if you use only one \caption, or multiple \caption{...}\addtocounter{figure}{-1} you can use the same figure number for each figure (the list of figures will probably get confused). – John Kormylo Nov 26 '14 at 1:45
  • I'm using `subfigure' – Cecilia Guerra Nov 26 '14 at 17:44
  • Thanks, I fixed it with \addtocounter{figure}{-1} and setting the counter of the subfigures as well with \setcounter{subfigure}{n}. – Cecilia Guerra Nov 26 '14 at 18:00

You can use the \ContinuedFloat command of the subfig package.

In the preamble load it like:


and then in the text:

  \subfloat[caption 1]{\includegraphic{fig-1} } \,
  \subfloat[caption 2]{\includegraphic{fig-2} } \,
  \subfloat[caption 3]{\includegraphic{fig-3} } \,
  %load as many figures until one page is filled

and then, to proceed on the following page

  \subfloat[caption 4]{\includegraphic{fig-1} } \,
  \caption{Caption for the 4 subfloats}
