I have a problem in managing tables in LyX. Problem is that I need tables under the same section, but I could not. Can anybody help me in this regard?

Do you mean tables should not float out of their section, or something else? The question is not very clear. – David Carlisle Dec 31 '12 at 0:44

I suspect that you want to add


Then floating tables and figures will not float out of the section in which they are entered.

Thanks, I got it – user4299 Dec 31 '12 at 1:24
For any lost souls looking for other types of floats: this usage of placeins works just as well for figure-floats as well. I therefore suspect that this should work for all types of floats - not just table floats – inspectorG4dget Dec 15 '13 at 10:36
