# Where to put floats definitions?

I always use floats for figures, tables, graphs, and any other object that is not part of the text. LaTeX do a really good job. Normally I put the definition when i use a withe line (after the paragraph that contains the reference to the float). It is correct? Where we have to put float definition (after the reference with input, at the end of the sentence, ...) to have the best positioning of float (decided by LaTeX, without options like h, b, ... that i never use)?

If the question is unclear, please tell me. I will try to improve it! ;) –  R. M. Sep 25 '12 at 20:46
This is most likely based on user preference and where you want the floats to end up. Related, if not duplicate: Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned and How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? –  Werner Sep 25 '12 at 20:54
@Werner I don't want to keep floats close to to where we defined it or influence positioning of floats. I want LaTeX to do it completly automatically. I just want to know if there is a "rule" over definition position to obtain the best typographical result. –  R. M. Sep 25 '12 at 21:10
