Hi everyone,

Quick question, can you duplicate the same figure multiple times in your thesis? I made an original flowchart that summaries a certain process and want to include in several sections. Should I modify them ever so slightly so they are unique individual figures or is it okay to simply duplicate?

If you are going through the flowchart in stages, it might look nice to redo the figure with the relevant part highlighted for emphasis with a box round it or in bold.
Failing that, duplicating is a good way of preventing your reader having to go back multiple pages.

Thanks for the advice pm133. I was looking through my collated chapters and saw several duplicated figures and panicked if that was allowed.

Yep it's allowed. I've seen it in textbooks too I think.
