# Latex Figures appear before text in pandoc markdown

I am using pandoc to convert markdown to pdf, but I need to place some figures with more formating than the

  ![Alt text](image.png)


so I use something like this:

  # Document with figures

This document have figures but they appear before the title

\begin{figure}
\centering
{\includegraphics[width=2.5in]{some_figure.png}}
\caption{Comparing Dq from different p-model}
\end{figure}


and then I use the following command:

 pandoc -H test_fig.sty test_fig.md -o test_fig.pdf


and test_fig.sty have:

 \usepackage{graphicx}


the resulting pdf have first the figure and then the title.

This is most likely because the figure environment floats, which is not what you're after. For this you have a couple of options:

1. Add the float package which provides the H float specifier, allowing you to use

\usepackage{float}% http://ctan.org/pkg/float
%...

\begin{figure}[H]
%...
\caption[<ToC>]{<regular>}
\end{figure}


stopping the float from moving around.

2. Add the caption (or the super-tiny capt-of) package and wrap your figure inside a minipage to keep the image and caption together. Use it as follows:

\usepackage{caption}% http://ctan.org/pkg/caption
%\usepackage{capt-of}% http://ctan.org/pkg/capt-of
%...

\noindent\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
%...
\captionof{figure}[<ToC>]{<regular>}
\end{minipage}
%...


For more information on the placement of figures, see How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? and Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned.

The above proposal are purely LaTeX-driven.
