I have a PDF in landscape and would like to add it to my thesis just as it is in the picture below.

It needs to be on the fullpage and I would like to add the caption directly in the middle over the pdf as shown below. Its in german and reads "Abbildung 4.6: Schaltplan"

I tried a lot but can't figure it out.

  1. Which package do I need to use?
  2. And how do I insert it fullframe?
  3. How to rotate it?
  4. How to overlay the caption?

Would be awesome if someone managed to help me!

Exactly how I want to add my PDF file

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Stefan Pinnow Apr 23 at 17:27

solved the problem. just rotate the PDF on the pc and then this post should help you:

Formatting figure captions overlayed with TikZ

  • If you have the PDF tools, it sounds like the easiest solution. But it does not solve the caption problem, right? – U. Windl Apr 29 at 7:40
  • In the link I provided the problem is solved. Insert PDF with TikZ and then you can overlay the caption. Just look at the answer of the post I have linked too! To rotate a PDF use adobe reader 1- Rotate the PDF 2 -print it using microsoft print to pdf, make sure to select portrait or landscape, if the setting is set to auto it will not rotate it!!!! – Nadim Hanna Apr 29 at 21:54
