comment Float appears many pages too late, even after new chapter
OK, I have now stated the symptom that confused me followed by its resolution. Next time I'll know better how to post.

Removed irrelevant confusions. Stated the symptom and then the resolution.

Help me out, Mico: I posted an Answer with the underlying error explained. Is that not the right procedure? I will now put the explanation in the body of the original post. It does seem to me that this is a problem that could mystify others.

comment Float appears many pages too late, even after new chapter
OK, I tried this: \meaning\cleardoublepage\meaning\clearpage inserts the following into the document: macro:-¿“clearpage “thispagestyle –empty ̋“strut “vfill “eject macro:-¿“vfill “eject “relax Also, \show\cleardoublepage inserts the following into the log file: > \cleardoublepage=macro: ->\clearpage \thispagestyle {empty}\strut \vfill \eject . And \show\clearpage inserts the following into the log file: > \clearpage=macro: ->\vfill \eject \relax .

There are no warnings in the .log file, neither on the page where the figure environment was invoked, nor on the page where the float actually appears. If this is not a well-known pathology, then probably this thread should be closed until I have had a chance to follow up on the previous suggestions.

Thanks, Zarko: The float in question is only about 1/5 of the page height, so it's not over-sized. Thanks Johannes_B: I just wondered if there were any known precedent for floats passing over a chapter, and past a \cleardoublepage, which I thought was impossible. Thanks Ulrich: I will look into page output tracing.

Thanks Lev and Paul. I'll try this and the other suggestions. Lev is right that ideally I'd like to stick to lossless methods if possible, for the reason he cites.

Martin - I missed your other question. The reason I go through eps and Distiller is that saving directly as PDF in Illustrator gives me a bad bounding box. When I do this, the bounding box includes a whole page, not just my graphic. I would be glad to know how to circumvent this behavior, and hence remove Distiller from the workflow.

Thanks, Martin. "This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.3-1.40.12 (TeX Live 2011) restricted \write18 enabled." I, too, suspect that this is an Apple issue, and will ask my readers to try Adobe Reader. Sadly, this won't help the iPad users.
