I am writing a two-column article and all my figures are included with the figure environment but one using figure* so that it can be displayed page-wide. The problem is that that specific figure is not displayed in the right figure order while others figures do. So I have this order of figures in my article: 6, 7, 12 (figure*), 8, 9, 10, 11, 13. Any idea why? Note, I am using the Springer template and I am not using any placement options (such as H).

    Move the code for the figure* later in the document.

This is a known problem in LaTeX2e; it is fixed by loading the fixltx2e package.
