I have several EPS (or SVG) graphics I would like to have in subfigures. The subfigures represent the same object throughout various stages. The width and height of the graphics are inconsistent. I want to align the subfigures to the same point in the EPS files. In the example below, I want the subfigures aligned at the M. The picture below show the unaligned subfigures.
The picture below shows how I want the figures aligned. Notice the distances between the Ms are the same.
I have tried manually defining a centre using TikZ, but it is inaccurate and a bit laborious. The real figures are a lot more complicated and can not simply be drawn in PGF/TikZ.
If there is no (simple) way of doing this in LaTeX, I am open for suggestions using InkScape, InDesign etc.
