To facilitate the figure set
linking available in the navigation table the
online only figures and associated information need to be placed in new
AASTeX/LaTeX mark up specifically designed for figure sets. This webpage
creates this LaTeX mark up.
Begin by entering the required information in the text boxes
below and uploading a translation table for your figures. A translation
table relates each online only figure in the figure set to its own descriptive
identification which is then used as the link name in the navigation table.
Each line in the table has one figure name and one link name separated by
either an ampersand or a tab. Each figure should be name following the
naming convention of fX_Y.eps where "X" is the figure set number and "Y"
is a number for each subfigure. A sample table is provided in the example
below. The output of the tool is the LaTeX mark up which can be copied to
a computer and merged directly into a ms.tex file. The first figure in
the translation table is used as the example figure in the print and
PDF versions. It is also repeated as the first figure in the figure set.
An example figure set is provided via the button at the top of
the tool. Clicking on the example button will fill in the text
boxes with information for a figure set containing the first
10 objects in the Messier catalog. You will also need to download the
example translation table which can be obtained via
this link. Copy the table to your
computer and use it in the upload box before hitting the Continue
button. To see how this example mark up would appear in the electronic
edition click on this
link. The catalog is set up as Figure set 2 with M1 as the example
for the print edition. The other 9 Messier objects would only appear in
the electronic edition.
Integrate the output file into your latex manuscript accordingly to the
instructions at the top of the output file. Please note that the main
purpose of the figure set mark up is not to render the figures in
print/pdf editions but rather let the copy editor know how to set the figures
up in the electronic edition. Thus when you ''latex'' a manuscript with
figure set mark up no figures in the mark up will be shown. All you will
see is the figure set title offset on its own page. This is normal. You
will have to include an example figure representing the figure set outside
of the figure set mark up using regular figure techniques.
You will have a chance to ''proof'' all electronic only items when you
receive your regular paper proofs from the publishers.
