# How to put figures in the margin beside text? [duplicate]

For my thesis, I would like to be able to put some illustrative pictures in the (exterior) margin, beside text as it is the case in following example (original document, p. 16)

However, I cannot find the keywords that would lead me to an answer (I am stuck in threads about side-by-side figures or text-wrapping).

Thanks for any help!

• The package you should take a look at is called marginnote. Your PDF has been typeset with pdfLaTeX. You could kindly ask the author for the source code (or parts of it). – LaRiFaRi Sep 8 '15 at 14:27

• Use the tufte-book class. – Yiannis Lazarides Sep 8 '15 at 14:32
• Technically, a figure is a float and takes up an entire column, but one can always put an image} into a \marginpar or \marginnote.. To include a \captionof{figure} you will need to use \begin{minipage}{\marginparwidth} .. \end{minipage} since captions use \par. – John Kormylo Sep 8 '15 at 19:23
• @LaRiFaRi yes I will. marginnote seems to be a good start! @StevenB.Segletes yes it is, thx. @YiannisLazarides It is the kind of result I'd like to achieve, indeed. However, I'd personnaly like - as far as possible - to remain within Koma-script classes that I begin to master and already pimped a bit. – ebosi Sep 8 '15 at 21:02
