I want to present 4 figures inside one float, so I'm using the following format: enter image description here

Although, when I present this float I get: enter image description here

As you can see, there is a small vertical space between the first "line" to the other. I want the 4 figure to be aligned and symmetric.

Appreciate your help, thanks!

Note: the lyx file + latexpdf + pdf available in the comments.

  • Welcome, can you boil down your LyX document to just this and upload the lyx file? The exported pdflatex file would be great as well. – Johannes_B Jan 15 '17 at 7:37
  • Hi, I don't know how to add files, but I can share this link: drive.google.com/open?id=0B3qnsDa7ZucCZVE1ZWZ6aksydmc – roishik Jan 15 '17 at 7:51
  • Please add the content of the files. They should be rather short, as everything else is removed. Open them with a simple text editor. – Johannes_B Jan 15 '17 at 7:52
  • @Mico Just to be sure, i can see \newline in the screenshot. It is even in the title. – Johannes_B Jan 15 '17 at 10:40
  • @Johannes_B - Ah, i had overlooked the newline string in the title! I still believe, though, that the OP ought to have made more of an effort to post the code in the query itself, to make it more accessible and user-friendly. If you believe the query merits re-opening, please go ahead. – Mico Jan 15 '17 at 11:12

Ok, I guess I solved it. I don't know why, but apparently using \\ instead of \newline just solved the problem (didn't create the space).

The difference between \ and \newline detailed here.

Thank you all anyway :)

  • You right, edited. – roishik Jan 15 '17 at 12:09

Do yourself some favors:

  1. Use a macro instead of repeating umpteen times a long path.

  2. Don't rely on dubious sources for LaTeX code.

  3. Don't use \newline or \\ when not needed; by the way, \newline should never be used in a \centering context.

  4. Don't use px, because you don't know how big it is.

The centering environment doesn't exist as such; there is the \centering declaration.

In the following example I used the demo option to graphicx because I don't have your images.
