Figure doing whatever it wants.

Postby SebRM » Sat Feb 02, 2019 10:28 pm

Hey guys! So i am working on a pdf with TexShop.
I am trying to include the following lines: [I will mark them with **]

Plain Text
Plain Text
** \begin{figure}[h]
** \end{figure}

Plain Text

ISSUE: When I run these things, the figure appears below the {title2} section, It doesn't care if I write [h, or p, or t]
it still appears at the end of that section, I do not understand why.
Your help would be really apreciated!

Welcome to the forum!

The code (maybe based on some older Internet sample code) is not optimal. I recommend to never use \bf and to use \\ only in tables, never in text.

It could be like this:

  1. \section{title}
  2. Plain Text
  3. For example, see fig.~\ref{run_integrate2-FvsN}% same as in \label
  4. Plain Text
  5. \begin{figure}[htbp!]
  6. \centering%if you like
  7. \includegraphics[width=\textwidth]{run_integrate2-FvsN}
  8. \caption{figure caption text}
  9. \label{run_integrate2-FvsN}
  10. \end{figure}
  11. \section{title2}
  12. Plain Text

Figures float for optimal page breaks. They stay in the same chapter though. If you want to let them stay even in the same section, use


in the preamble.
