Release: 2023-08-16 v1.0

License: LPPL 1.3c

KOMA presents the floatrowbytocbasic package to extend the functionality of package floatrow. The floatrowbytocbasic package is part of the third-party enhancements project.

This work may be distributed and/or modified under the conditions of the Project Public License, version 1.3c of the license. The latest version of this license is in http://www.latex-project.org/lppl.txt and version 1.3c or later is part of all distributions of version 2005/12/01 or later.

The Current Maintainer and author of this work is Markus Kohm.


For several years KOMA-Script provided a package scrhack, that has been made not only to improve the compatibility of third-party packages with KOMA-Script classes, but also to generally improve third-party packages. The package consisted not only in the package file scrhack.sty but also in several so called hacks as separate files with extension .hak. In the course of splitting off former KOMA-Script packages from the KOMA-Script collection, it was decided to create independent packages from the individual hacks. These new independent packages then serve as replacements for the original packages they were intended to improve. Package floatrowbytocbasic is such an enhancement package. It provides additional features of using package tocbasic by patching package floatrow.

Installation for Users

If you are a user, you should wait until the package has been added to your preferred distribution. Then you can use the package manager of your distribution to install the package.

Unpacking for Distributors

Distributors should download the distribution from CTAN. This consists in:

  • floatrowbytocbasic.dtx
  • README.md
  • LICENSE.md
  • floatrowbytocbasic.pdf

If distributors also want to distribute floatrowbytocbasic.sty, they can unpack it using

tex floatrowbytocbasic.dtx

Note, that you have to use tex not latex, pdflatex, xelatex or lualatex!

Note also, that a legal distribution consists at least in:

  • floatrowbytocbasic.dtx
  • README.md

The following files are optionally, but must not be distributed without the previous ones:

  • LICENSE.md
  • floatrowbytocbasic.sty
  • floatrowbytocbasic.pdf

Unpacking and Installation for Developers

Developers who want the current developer version of the code to be installed for testing, should clone the third-party-enhancements repository, e.g., using

git clone https://github.com/komascript/third-party-enhancements.git

You can than either unpack and install all the third-party enhancements using:

l3build install --full

from within the main directory of the cloned respository. For installation of floatrowbytocbasic only run the same command from within the floatrowbytocbasic subdirectory. For installation without the manual omit option --full, but this is not recommended for developers.

How to get the Manual

After installation you should get the user manual using:

texdoc floatrowbytocbasic

See the manual of your distribution for more information.

Developers or distributors can also build the manual from the source using:

l3build doc

How to Contribute

To become a contributor, e.g., do heavy testing. If you find an issue, please report it using the issue tracker. You can also become a developer and, e.g., make new test files to the packages. See the l3build manual for more information about tests. If you've created a new test and think that it would be useful. Please either do a pull request or add a new issue and include your test file.

Another kind of contribution would be to contact an author of one of the third-party packages and convince her or him to integrate the code of the corresponding enhancement package from this project into her or his package.

How to Report Issues

If you think you have found a bug (or another kind of issue) using floatrowbytocbasic you should use the issue tracker. Please first search for similar issues already reported and maybe also already fixed and closed. Maybe the replies to such a similar report would help you too.

If your issue is new, you should report it also using the issue tracker. Please be kind, not only when writing the report but also when reading replies and commenting or answering. And please always add a minimal working example and usually the relevant parts of the log-file to your report. Please use the markdown for code to add such files into the text of your report. The correct language identifier for code would be latex. For log-files you won't need any language identifier. Usually you should not use attachments for code or log-files unless you've been asked to do so. And please note, reports should always be self-containing. External links often break and so the report become useles.

How to Say Thank You for my Work

Hey, I'm doing this as a hobby. So no need to say thank you. But I'm a vain fop, so I'm certainly up for a quick thank you by email. On komascript.de you can find an explanation of my wishes if you want to give more. If you don't understand German, just click to links at that page.
