Thank you, this is indeed very useful!

I only have one question:

What should I adjust if I have 3×2 subfigures?

I followed your suggestion with adding an empty line after the third subfigure but I end up with 2 colums and 4 lines instead of 3 colums and 2 lines.

Hi Anja,

Thanks for your question. The code below produces three columns. The trick is to split the line width into three equal parts instead of assigning a fixed width.

Best, Tom
