Chapter 6. Mastering Floats > 6.2. Float placement control

6.2. Float placement control

Floats always after their call-out

The float placement algorithm prefers to put floats at the top of the page, even if it means placing them before the actual reference. This outcome is not always acceptable but there is no easy cure for this problem short of substantially changing LaTeX’s algorithm. The flafter package (by Frank Mittelbach) makes this change, thereby ensuring that floats are never placed before their references.

Sometimes, less drastic solutions might be preferred. For example, if the float belongs to a section that starts in the middle of a page but the float is positioned at the top of the page, the float will appear as if it belongs to the previous section. You might want to forbid this behavior while still allowing floats to be placed on the top of the page in other situations. For this purpose LaTeX offers you the following command.
