The overpic environment with relative positioning1. Insert before: \end{overpic}. (default for tics is 10 for ‘percent’ and for. ‘permil’). LATEX. Positioning the. 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.

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 postscript.


The other position specifiers are top and right. A full discussion of gnuplot lies beyond the scope of this note. The picture environment only admits diameters up to approximately 14mm, and even below this limit, not all diameters are possible.

Views Read Edit View history. Components also have to be coprime no common divisor except 1.

There is another possibility within the picture environment. Although programming pictures directly in LaTeX is severely restricted, and often rather tiresome, there are still reasons for doing so.


Ovdrpic like pict2eepiceepic or pstricks enhance the original picture environment, and greatly strengthen the graphical power of 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.

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

The optional position arguments b, t, l, r refer to “top”, “bottom”, “left”, “right”, and can be combined, as the example illustrates. In the example it is set to “bl” which puts the anchor point into the bottom left corner of the savebox. Policies and guidelines Contact us. The crosses indicate points of the real catenary. It is often far more convenient to plot directly to LaTeX, since this saves having to deal with overpi troublesome postscript files.

The picture environment allows programming pictures directly in LaTeX. The optional position parameter has the effect of defining the “anchor point” of the savebox.

See [ [1] ] for a tutorial.

CTAN: Package overpic

As in the case of line segments, one may have to resort to additional packages, such as eepicpstricksor tikz. Line thickness can be controlled by two kinds of commands: The documents thus produced are “small” with respect to bytes, and there are no additional graphics files to be dragged along.


The right half lates the curve ends in the point 2, 2. Overic figure below illustrates all 25 possible slope values in the first quadrant. From Wikibooks, open books for an open world. This page was last edited on 21 Januaryat The powerful scientific plotting package gnuplot has the capability to output directly to a LaTeX picture environment.

The picture is defined in convenient “mathematical” coordinates, whereas by the command. At least 8 are needed. The name argument refers to a LaTeX storage bin and therefore is of a command nature which accounts for the backslashes in the current example. The error is barely noticeable, being less than one percent. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy.
