EDAS treating subfigures within a figure as columns

Postby qasimilyas » Thu Sep 07, 2017 4:57 am

Hi,
I am in the process of submitting a two-column paper to EDAS (a conference submission repository), which is not getting submitted successfully.

The error message is "gutter width is below 0.25 inches".

When I remove the figures with subplots (many small figures lumped into one), the paper gets submitted. So the problem is not with the text of the paper. It is with figures having subplots closer to each other than what EDAS wants as a column spacing (gutter width).

I have tried \onecolumn and \twocolumn but they create a page break. Is there a way to satisfy EDAS submission check in this scenario?

Cheers,
Qasim

Without knowing the code you are usin and the EDAS template, nobody knows what's going on.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.

Welcome to the forum!

We can help for sure. We just need to know the details.
If you would post

  • the EDAS template (as attachment) or a link where we can download it
  • and your document code (you can reduce to the minimum)

that's the perfect situation where we can fix anything.

Sure, you can remove every content, as long as the document is compilable with the template source and we can verify the problem to fix it. No need to include personal or sensitive data. The attachment link is below the text edit field, when writing a post.

I will be offline for a few days (evacuating with a ship from the Bahamas because of the Hurricane Irma) but TeX friends such as Johannes may help too, with enough information.

This is my first post here, so didn't know that. The Latex template is here.

http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/ ... lates.html

I assume that it is enough to write the start of the code here.

  1. \documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}
  2. \usepackage{cite,afterpage,lscape}
  3. \usepackage{amsmath,amssymb,amsfonts}
  4. \usepackage{graphicx,subcaption}
  5. \usepackage{textcomp,flushend}
  6. \setlength{\columnsep}{0.5 in}
  7. \usepackage[left=1.5cm, right=1.5cm, top=1.9cm,bottom=4.3cm]{geometry}
  8. %\usepackage[bindingoffset=0.2in,left=18mm,right=18mm,top=25mm,bottom=25mm,footskip=.25in]{geometry}
  9. \def\BibTeX{{\rm B\kern-.05em{\sc i\kern-.025em b}\kern-.08em
  10. T\kern-.1667em\lower.7ex\hbox{E}\kern-.125emX}}

Is it still a crosspost if on a different forum? If yes, let me which one to remove.

You can leave both, just the link was missing.

Just the start is not enough, we need to reproduce the exact error you see.

For that I need to attach my figure somewhere because if the figure is commented out, the gutter width error disappears.

Package mwe provides some dummy figures you could use.
