# How to center the caption inside /Figure in IEEE Access

IEEE Access' Latex template uses its own figure class named \Figure

\Figure[t!](topskip=0pt, botskip=0pt, midskip=0pt)[width=\linewidth]{fig1.png}{<caption>\label{fig1}}

This command is for wide figures, that is, figures which span two columns. However I have two problems about that command:

1. In Scenario a; my figure fit on the page width but the caption is not centered and including caption as package at the beginning of document is resulted with many error related to figure. So it is not the solution. On the other hand in Scenario b; caption is centered automatically but my figure exceeds the page width.

Scenario a: \Figure[t!](topskip=0pt, botskip=0pt, midskip=0pt)[width=\linewidth]{fig1.png}{<caption>\label{fig1}}

Scenario b: \Figure[t!](topskip=0pt, botskip=0pt, midskip=0pt){fig1.png}{<caption>\label{fig1}}

2. Some large figures are placed on a blank page at the bottom instead of in the text and pushes all the other figures under it. So, the remaining page consists of all rest of the figures only.

Note: I'm using Overleaf as latex environment.

• please list MWE with your code starting with \documentclass and finishing with \end{document} Dec 12 '19 at 13:49
• I'm asking a general question really I don't think it is really necessary to list with example. But you can find the latex template of IEEE access from here: journals.ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/… Dec 12 '19 at 14:09
• I think it is necessary to list an example. I tried the template you linked to and it doesn't contain a \Figure command showing either of the problems you listed. So it'd be nice to see the actual code you're using that generated these problems, rather than guessing at what code you have. Already you mentioned changing [ht!] in your answer, but the template's .tex file doesn't contain [ht!], so you must have added or changed some figures in the template file to get something that shows the problems you listed.

• Centering would be difficult, since you don't have control over \figurename etc. In any case, if the manual doesn't allow it, don't do it. Dec 12 '19 at 16:46
• Exactly, I don't have any control over \figure. Unless I resize my figure the caption is centered, directly, however I need to resize it. So I'm considering to resize before upload to latex directory. Thanks anyway. Dec 12 '19 at 17:38

\Figure[!h](topskip=0pt, botskip=0pt, midskip=0pt)[width=1\linewidth]{my_image.png}{my caption \label{fig:block}}
