I'm writing a two columns document and I have two figures on the last page stacked in one column. The first one at the top and the second one almost at the bottom. How can I force the second one to be shown just after the first one with no empty lines between them?


Place the two graphics/diagrams and their captions within a single figure environment (with some vertical space added between graphic 1 and graphic 2).

EDIT: Cross-referencing works as usual -- put \label commands after each \caption.





\rule{1cm}{1cm}% placeholder for graphic
\caption{A figure}\label{fig:a}
\rule{1cm}{1cm}% placeholder for graphic
\caption{Another figure}\label{fig:b}

See figure~\ref{fig:a} and figure~\ref{fig:b}.

  • How can I reference the two figures and still having them listed with two different major numbers (like Fig. 1 and Fig. 2)? – andrea Sep 25 '11 at 11:12
