I am trying to integrate a figure spanning both columns as shown in 1, 2 or 3, but it does not seem to work for me. And I can't figure out why.

The code:

    \caption{Points of failure on a password's way}
    \item   Social Engineering
    \item   Single Point of Failure: Nutzer
    \item   Phishing
    \item   Shoulder Surfing
    \item   Key Logger/ Video Aufnahmen
    \item   Replay Angriff
    \item   Dictionary
    \item   Brute-Force

Which gives me the following errors enter image description here

I thought it was about the next page not being filled (because the help text said that floats are not typically placed on the first side). But I filled it (\lipsum[1-14]) and the error still occurs :P

Sorry for stupid german-english. Textstudio runs in a kind of mixture. Fehler = Error and Zeile = line.

Apparently I needed the package graphicx and not graphics ...

  • It is solved I used \usepackage{graphics} at first, but apparently I need to use \usepackage{graphicx}. It works now. But I have to wait for 2 days to mark it as solved :P But thanks anyways! :D
