6.3. Extensions to LaTeX’s float concept

By default, LaTeX offers two types of horizontally oriented float environments, figure and table. For many documents these prove to be sufficient; in other cases additional features are needed. In this section we now look at packages that extend this basic tool set to cover more complex cases.

The float package offers ways to define new float types and also provides one way to prevent individual floats from floating at all. A different approach to the latter problem is given by the caption package.

The last two packages described in this section, rotating and rotfloat, allow the rotation of the float content, something that might be necessary for unusually large float objects.
