I'm exploring KOMA and am trying to create a new type of float using the built-in \DeclareNewTOC functionality. However, the float seems to be pushed to its own page (and/or before any other floats of the same floattype). Tables and figures seem fine, however



    listname={List of Examples}

\chapter{My chapter}

\caption{Example caption}
This is an example



The result is the example is pushed to the third page, even though there is plenty of room on page 2. Thoughts?

Example output:

  • odd, it isn't picking up the default. if you use \begin{example}[tb] then it works. Dec 10, 2013 at 17:32

    Seems to be a bug. You should write a bug report. Dec 10, 2013 at 17:33

This is fixed in v3.12 (2013/12/19) of KOMA-Script. If you haven't already done so you may consider updating your TeX distribution.

  • Thanks! I sent an email to the address listed in the Koma script documentation, but the email bounced back. Feb 11, 2014 at 17:18
  • @BenP. The easiest way is to write Markus Kohm directly to the address found on www.komascript.de or leave a post there in the forum.
