The command \definefloat defines floating object classes.

Bug report: there are backslashes in front of the instance names below, which is misleading. Until I find a solution for the incorrect visual, just pretend the backslashes are not there. --Taco (talk) 20:35, 7 September 2020 (CEST) (See: Bug List)




[...]singular plural
...=...,...inherits from \setupfloat

Settings name



Define a new float type additional to predefined types "chemical", "graphic", "figure", "table" and "intermezzo". When invoked as \definefloat[remark][remarks][intermezzo], the following commands are defined, with defaults taken from the intermezzo environment, and the "intermezzo" counter will be used for "remark" floats:
  • \setupremark to set up the new environment
  • \placeremark to place a remark block
  • \startplaceremark...\stopplaceremark is the same, as an environment
  • \placelistofremarks for a 'table of remarks'.
  • \completelistofremarks for a table of remarks with a header
  • \startremarktext...\stopremarktext

It also defines:

  • the counter 'remark' (inherits from intermezzo)
  • the label 'remark' (inherits from intermezzo)

If no parent is given, then the label is the \Word value of the name (so: Remark) in this case.

TODO: there are some more commands and internals automatically generated (See: To-Do List)


Example 1



\placefigure{caption 1}{\framed{figure 1}} % old one
\placerightfigure{caption 2}{\framed{figure 2}} % new one
\placefigure{caption 3}{\framed{figure 3}}
