I want to split a main figure which has four sub-figures in it. I am unable to get solution from the previous posts on the same subject and therefore had to make this post.

  • How big are the subfigures? Does each one occupy a whole page, or do two subfigures fit on one page? Which package do you use to create the subfigures in the first place? Since figure environments can't be split across pages, have you considered creating two (or even four) separate, stand-alone figure environments? (In the legends of figures 2, 3, and 4, you might insert a sentence pointing the reader to the first figure in the group.)

Probably the following solution is what you looking for:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{caption}
\usepackage{subcaption}

\begin{document} 
    \begin{figure}[tb]
\begin{subfigure}[t]{0.5\hsize}
    \includegraphics[width=0.9\linewidth]{example-image}
    \caption{}
\end{subfigure}   
\begin{subfigure}[t]{0.5\hsize}
    \includegraphics[width=0.9\linewidth]{example-image}
    \caption{}
\end{subfigure}
    \caption{first part of my figure}
    \end{figure}
\clearpage   
    \begin{figure}[tb]\ContinuedFloat
\begin{subfigure}[t]{0.5\hsize}
    \includegraphics[width=0.9\linewidth]{example-image}
    \caption{}
\end{subfigure}
\begin{subfigure}[t]{0.5\hsize}
    \includegraphics[width=0.9\linewidth]{example-image}
    \caption{}
\end{subfigure}
    \caption{second part of my figure}
    \end{figure}
\end{document}

Macro \ContinuedFloat from package caption restore figure number and enable increment subfigures numbers from last subfigure in previous figure .

  • how to stop \ContinuedFloat ? all my subsequent figures have a continued captioning when I us this macro.
