# Line break between two graphics in a subfig-style subfloat

What I am trying to achieve is this:

AA B
AA C


A being one subfigure, B+C a second. However, I don't achieve the line break between B and C:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{subfig}
\usepackage{mwe}
%\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\subfloat[]{%
\includegraphics[width=0.6666\linewidth]{example-image-a}}
\subfloat[]{%
\includegraphics[width=0.3333\linewidth]{example-image-b}\\
\includegraphics[width=0.3333\linewidth]{example-image-c}}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


It basically looks like this:

AA
AA BC


What am I doing wrong?

• either of the first two links in the related list on the right shows how to force a linebreak in subfig – David Carlisle May 11 '16 at 17:51
• The second one is tex.stackexchange.com/questions/125287 and the answer is about the subcaption package. – bers May 11 '16 at 17:56
• The first one is tex.stackexchange.com/questions/31420 and recommends using \shortstack. However, changing \\  into \shortstack{\\} gives Misplaced \cr. – bers May 11 '16 at 18:07
• it means \shortstack{\includegraphics{} \\ \includegraphics{}} (it is just a form of compressed tabular) – David Carlisle May 11 '16 at 19:00
• Oh, I incorrectly assumed \shortstack was for text only. Thanks, much simpler than a table or a minipage! – bers May 11 '16 at 23:58

Try

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{subfig}
\usepackage{mwe}
%\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}
\begin{document}
\begin{figure}
\subfloat[]{%
\includegraphics[width=0.6666\linewidth]{example-image-a}}
\subfloat[]{\begin{tabular}[b]{c}%
\includegraphics[width=0.3333\linewidth]{example-image-b}\\
\includegraphics[width=0.3333\linewidth]{example-image-c}
\end{tabular}}
\end{figure}
\end{document}


It seems that inside subfloat is not possible to break line, so I put both figures in tabular environment.

• Thanks for the suggestion! The spacing is not optimal, but maybe a minipage will improve that. – bers May 11 '16 at 18:00
• @bers, I didn't bother with spacing, but it can be done also with use of tabular. horizontal distance between A and B you can set with \hspace {<length>}  or hfil between subfloats, vertical distance between image b and c with \[<length>] after first row of table. To set the same height ... you can guess image with which will give desired height of image or, more complex approach, first you measure of height of right subfloat and than with it adjust height of image in the lest subfloat. – Zarko May 11 '16 at 18:09
