table in a paper

Postby miesam » Mon Apr 16, 2018 9:58 am

Hi. I am fairly confused about putting a table in a paper (article). I have followed the usual instructions but the table seems to be always centered vertically on the page

The table environment, like the figure environment, will put its content on a new page if the content takes up more than a certain fraction of the page. The fraction is determined by \topfraction, \bottomfraction, \textfraction, and \floatpagefraction.

You can control the decision of where to put the table on the page by issuing [tbp] (default), [bp], or [htbp] as optional arguments to the table environment. However, this is rarely the desired behavior.
