I'm kinda new on LaTeX and I have a little problem. I'm using the subfigure package and trying to reference my subfigures with \label{key}, but appears "(??)" when I do that. Here's the code: \.

The sidecap package can be used to place a caption next to the figure in such a case (it can also be used for other floating environments). The package uses an environment called SCfigure that can be used after including the package in preamble (\usepackage{sidecap}). This package supports typesetting of sub-captions (by using the the sub-caption feature of the caption package). At the end of each section, text marked with the mountain symbol will contain background knowl-edge on how the particular command or environment is actually implemented. If you just want to use this package as it is, you don’t have.

You can change the fonts, numbering style, alignment and format of the captions and the caption labels. \end {tabular} \ caption {\ label {tab:table-name} Your caption.} \end {table} Note that the table environment will also let the figure 'float' to where LaTeX thinks it should go. If you want more control over figure placement, you can use placement specifiers as described in this section of the LaTeX Wikibook.
