I wish to place a caption on the left side of my figure.

I'm using revtex4-1 as follows:


I wish to place the figure only on one column, with the caption beside it, not underneaph.

It seems that non of the solutions that I've found here: Caption on the side of a figure work.

For example, using \usepackage{sidecap} and \begin[SCfigure]... \end{SCfigure} seems to fail.

What is the correct soltion which works for my document class?

    Please provide us with the error that you are getting when using SCfigure – nikjohn Apr 8 '17 at 12:55

Please post a snippet of your code for us to see how it fails. Nonetheless, in my system it works perfectly fine. Try the following code:


\usepackage{caption, subcaption}
\usepackage{lipsum}   % you don't need this one

    \caption{some caption that is used as a means to test the side caption of this figure}
