2

Could you please give me some advice about this situation? Thank you so much.

I would like to move all the titles to the left.

But if we want to draw the following figure with 2 subfigures then we have to use packages "caption" and "subcaption", but these two packages will not allow us to move all the figure titles to the left.

  • Unrelated to your problem, most likely, but you're loading hyperref ways too early. – user31729 Feb 4 at 8:46

you have more problems with your code:

  • in preamble of your mwe you have some packages loaded twice
  • document class svjour3 load graphicx, so you not need to load them (twice!)
  • tikz is not able to handle so accurate defined coordinates as you use. it is sufficient to round them to two decimals
  • for your problem are relevant only the following packages: tikz, subcaption and hyperref.
  • float environments should not be inside other environments like center or minipage ...
  • for left align of caption and sub-captions use caption set up \captionsetup{singlelinecheck=off}

edit: mostly of topic ...

  • your image code is really unnecessary complicated
  • it is far more simple (to my experiences) for your geometric elements use shapes defined in tikz package (rectangle, circle`)
  • for caption and sub-captions set up see documentations for caption and subcaption packages, both are part of your LaTeX installation
  • definitions of your colors should be in document preamble
  • changes in preamble are indicated by % <---

mwe, considering aforementioned, is:

  • Thank you so much for your great help. Could you please let me know how can you make "(a)", "(b)" and "Fig. 1" in bold? I just know how to make the sentences "This is a square" in bold by command {\bf ...}. – Ross Feb 4 at 10:04
  • @Ross, later evening (CET) now i'm on the way. – Zarko Feb 4 at 10:05
  • Please take your time. Thank you very much, Zarko. – Ross Feb 4 at 10:20
  • I found it \usepackage[labelfont=bf]{caption}. Thank you again. ^^ – Ross Feb 4 at 10:58

    @Ross, you are right. size of page is determined by document class (svjour3), however you can say a4paper or letterpaper or select others size. for details about geometry package see documentation for this package. it is part of its installation. docement also load default (desired) font size. – Zarko Feb 5 at 8:17
