# Figures numbering locally

I have chosen the chapter numbering for the figures but at some figures which I have it all in the same \begin{figure} environment using the \begin{minipage} environment, i prefer different numbering. So for example i will try to explain with an example:

figure 3.1
figure 3.2
figure 3.3.1
figure 3.3.2
figure 3.3.3
figure 3.4


In this example figure 3.3.1-3.3.3 is in the same \begin{figure} so I prefer the numbering which is shown above, and after that I want to continue with the previous numbering.

• Short answer (because of missing MWE): You could use a package like subcaption. The default would be numbering sub-figures with a, b, c … but you can change it. – Schweinebacke Apr 20 '17 at 14:32
