# LYX: How to remove white spaces between two figures

Lyx is leaving a lot of white space between figures. I want to reduce this white space. How can I do this in LYX, I am not familiar with latex coding. Attached is the image of the actual page. In lyx documents I have figure floats as float:Figure float:Figure float:Figure

• Do you have a two-column document? Perhaps a special document class?

• yes its a two-column document. This is the first time I am using lyx, i have been through tutorials to understand the basics but don't know how to get these small formatting right. I tried adding a vertical space between these figures and then giving it a very small custom value but the gap didn't reduced. Jan 19, 2016 at 22:02
