\startcombination

Syntax

\startcombination[c*r] ... \stopcombination
[c*r] columns * rows

Description

A combination is a number of objects arranged in a matrix, with a caption below each object. (The captions may be empty.)

Example

\setupexternalfigures[location={local, default}]
\placefigure
    [here]                                       % figure placement
    [fig:combinations]                           % figure reference
    {An example of \type{\startcombination...}.} % figure caption
    {\startcombination[3*2]                      % contents of the figure: a combination
        % first row
        {\externalfigure[cow][height=1cm]} {a}   % subfigure and subcaption
        {\externalfigure[cow][height=1cm]} {b}
        {\externalfigure[cow][height=1cm]} {c} 
        % second row
        {\externalfigure[cow][height=1cm]} {d}
        {\externalfigure[cow][height=1cm]} {e} 
        {\externalfigure[cow][height=1cm]} {f}
     \stopcombination}

This MkIV example shows how to autolabel figures with

\useMPlibrary[dum]

\definecombination[mycombi][alternative=label]

\setuplabel[combination:mycombi][
    text={Item },
    numberconversion=character,
    stopper=!,
]
