In my document I number tables and figures with the same counter, using the answer to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3865036/using-a-single-count-for-figures-and-tables-in-latex/7771554#7771554.
I'd like them to appear in numerical order. That usually happens, but in one case I see Figure 1.2 after Table 1.3 - probably because the Table is smaller and happens to fit on the current page.
I could fix this by calling this Table a Figure without torturing the text too much, but a
LaTeX solution would be automatic.
If no one answers soon I can put together an MWE by playing with Figure, Table and page lengths.
The question and answer at Order of float types on float pages seems to deal with the opposite of what I want.
