# subfigure crop figures at the end of page

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:

\usepackage[caption=false]{subfig}


and then in the text:

\begin{figure}
\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
\end{figure}


and then, to proceed on the following page

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