I also know how to use the overpic command to write text over a figure. I would like to use both commands to place text over a subfigure.

LaTeX/Picture – Wikibooks, open books for an open world

The picture environment allows programming pictures directly in LaTeX. On the one hand, there are rather severe constraints, as the slopes of line segments and the radii of circles are restricted to a narrow choice of values. Although programming pictures directly in LaTeX is severely restricted, and often rather tiresome, there are still reasons for doing so.

The documents thus produced are “small” with respect to bytes, and there are no additional graphics files to be dragged along. Packages like pict2eepiceepic or pstricks enhance the original picture environment, and greatly strengthen the graphical power of LaTeX.

A picture environment is available in any LaTeX distribution, without the need of loading any external package.


Using overpic in a subfigure enviroment

This environment is created with one of the two commands. The figure below illustrates all 25 possible slope values in the first quadrant. Components also have to be coprime no common divisor except 1. The picture environment only admits diameters up to approximately 14mm, and even below this limit, not overipc diameters are possible.

As in the case of ovverpic segments, one may have to resort to additional packages, such as eepicpstricksor tikz. There is another possibility within the picture environment. The optional position arguments b, t, l, r refer to “top”, “bottom”, “left”, “right”, and can be combined, as the example illustrates.

Line thickness can be controlled by two kinds of commands: The optional position parameter has the effect of defining the “anchor point” of the savebox.

In ovrrpic example it is set to “bl” which puts the anchor point into the bottom left corner of the savebox. The other position specifiers are top and right.

The name lates refers to a LaTeX storage bin and therefore is of a command nature which accounts for the backslashes in the current example. Boxed pictures can be nested: At least 8 are needed.

The right half of the curve ends in the point 2, 2. They turn out to be 1. The crosses indicate points of the real catenary. The error is barely noticeable, being less than one latfx. The picture is defined in convenient “mathematical” coordinates, whereas by the command.



The powerful scientific plotting package gnuplot has the capability to output directly to a LaTeX picture environment. It is often far more convenient to plot directly to LaTeX, since this saves having to deal with potentially troublesome postscript files.

Plotting scientific data or, indeed, mathematical figures this way gives much greater control, and of course typesetting ability, than is available from other means such as lattex.

A full discussion of gnuplot lies beyond the scope of this note. See [ [1] ] for a tutorial. From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. oerpic
