I need to submit to a journal, separate files for each figure. I can submit figure 1. When I create the file for figure 2, the figure is automatically numbered "Figure 1". How can I begin numbering with "Figure 2"?

  • 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}. Jun 17 '19 at 17:35
  • Maybe they only want the graphic file in a separate file, not the figure environment with its caption and label?
