Figure caption on next page

• Email
• Follow

I have a large figure that takes up an entire page. I would like to
(1) place the caption on the following page (2) ensure the figure is
printed on a verso page so that the reader doesn't have to turn the
page to see the caption. I'm using memoir.

So far I have:

\begin{figure}
\includegraphics{big_figure}
\caption{See next page for caption}
\end{figure}
\begin{figure}
\caption[Short caption]{Big long caption.}
\label{fig:models}.
\end{figure}

But "See next page for caption" shows up in the List of Figures and
this seems fragile anyway (no guarantee the two figures will end up on
consecutive pages). Is there a better way in memoir? If not, how do I
get rid of the dummy entry in List of Figures? I've tried every
permutation of starred commands I can think of, which I know is how
you suppress a document division in the ToC.

And is there a way to ensure a particular figure is set on a verso
page?

\csname @fileswfalse\endscname
\caption{See next page for caption}
\csname @fileswtrue\endscname

dpfloat does that.  however, it's designed for *two* adjacent full-page
floats, though without its "fullpage" environment, it won't make the
recto-side float larger than is needed.

so it may solve your problem.  but i haven't actually tried.

You may also take a peek at the fltpage package.
