# reledmac+reledpar and figure

EDIT-2 see code below. I fixed it, and it works. My question is whether reledpar may help with what I need. This is to publish - face to face - scans of handwritten letters and their trascripts, for about 100 scans. Code below does not help because it seems I need to insert some dummy text on the leftside, and the final output is: a page with the scan, leftside page with dummy text, rightside page. (scan and dummy text goes within the same page if I downsize scan, but that is not good enough for my present)

ps also, I do not need to show line numbers, is there a option to hide them?

• please, dont send the question on both reledmac list (three time) and here. – Maïeul Jul 26 '16 at 14:21
• please also provides a full MWE – Maïeul Jul 26 '16 at 14:22
• @Maïeul yes, sorry, a mistake – mario Jul 26 '16 at 15:55
• see my new answer. I don't think reledpar is relevant in your case. – Maïeul Jul 27 '16 at 12:16
• @Maïeul, I looking at it. Back soon. – mario Jul 27 '16 at 15:36

If you want to have image on left page and text on right page, I don't think reledpar is relevant for you.

I will do it manually, this way:

\includegraphics[scale=.25]{test/001.jpg}
\newpage
transcription
\newpage
\includegraphics[scale=.25]{test/002.jpg}
\newpage
\transcription


Maybe a good thing could be to create a customize macro called "transcription".

\newcounter{transcription}
\newcommand[1]{%

As explained on reledmac list, you must use optional argument of \pstart. The content between a \pstart and a \pend must be only text.
So do \pstart[HERE code for inserting figure] text \pend
