Precise float placement

October 22, 2010


If you know LaTeX, you know that precise float placement (I want this figure to positioned right here) is almost impossible. But what nobody told you is that there exists a float package (only since 2001 - maybe even earlier). With this package you get a new placement modifier: [H], which means: “Put this damn figure right here!”.

LateX users everywhere cheer.

Specifics are described in the pdf in the package. Using it on Ubuntu/Debian

apt-get install texlive-latex-recommended texlive-latex-recommended-doc
evince /usr/share/doc/texlive-doc/latex/float/float.pdf
