# Insert figure LaTeX problem!

 P: 10 Hello guys, I know this topic has been issued many times before. However I have an issue I cant find a solution for. I have a master file that calls another sub tex file using \include{}. This sub tex file has insert figures, I use insert figure options in the editor and the figures are in a sub folder where the this tex file resides. However when I compile the master file. I see no figure and also states that it cannot find the figure. I double checked the path name and white spaces too. Its not because of that. Can someone help me how to go abt it. I use INLAGE 4.7.13 as my Latex editor. Please find the attached file to run the files if you have time. docs.google.com/open?id=0B6yei5eTKtEsajd6T201bEpUOTA [ sorry this is just my second post and PF wont let me insert links/URL'S ] Thank you. PS: When I use insert figure it doesnt include the full path of the figure. why is that. If I include the full path then it works perfect. I dont understand why my editor doesnt include the full path and only the sub folder path.
 Mentor P: 15,170 I see figures in your generated pdf (thesis_master.pdf). Are you talking about the "fig ??" in your pdf file? That is a different problem. The solution is easy: Run latex again. And then run latex one more time because the pagination might be wrong (the figures and tables now have a title and this can change the pagination).
 P: 10 No thatz not what I meant. were you actually able to see the pictures ??? when I generated thesis_master.pdf I wasnt able to see any pictures that were added from my subfolder. Here have a look at the Pdf. This is what I meant. Unless I put in the whole path it wont display the picture. But the INLAGE editor I am using , when I use the insert figure option it just starts off the graphic path from the subfolder name : eg: subfolder/picture.jpg docs.google.com/open?id=0B6yei5eTKtEsajd6T201bEpUOTA Thanks for taking effort to see what is my problem.
 Engineering Sci Advisor HW Helper Thanks P: 7,175 Insert figure LaTeX problem! Tex doesn't have any built in concept of "change the current directory" or "automatically search subdirectories" when looking for files, but there are some workrounds here: http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2...el=docotherdir On the other hand, I'm not really sure whether your problem is about TeX or INLAGE, and I don't know anything about INLAGE. (And I don't trust google docs enough to go exploring your data on there - sorry!)
 P: 669 I usually have a subdirectory for figures. Then I use something like \includegraphics[width=0.8\columnwidth]{./figures/fig_1} Never had any problems with that, but I don't use INLAGE. I am not sure if you have to specify the path relative to the master file or the included one. Just try both :-P
 P: 604 Not too bad, gets more intuitive as you go along. If that makes sense. Going through some tutorials and trying to type of some math for a paper. Some basic and very stupid questions. I am using the TeXworks editor. When I get errors on attempting to typeset, I'm given a line number where the error occurred. That would be very helpful, if I knew where that line was. But it's not like they are numbered or anything, and I really don't want to count. Obviously I'm missing something here. I'm getting a "there's no line here to end" error, but it doesn't say what line. Where is "here?" That's all for now... -Dave K
