I am somewhat irritated about the numbering of tables. Unfortunately i dont have a MWE, i doubt the "error" will be seen in a short example (this is a thesis...). Also when moving things around the error will probably disappear on its own... still i'd rather know how to avoid it.

On to the issue, in the List Of Tables I have:

1. ... p.10
5. ... p. 52
2. ... p. 53
3. ... p. 54
4. ... p. 55

The List is actually correct in sorting according to page numbers. What irritates me is that the Table numbering is NOT distributed accordingly.

actually the Table numbering is in the order in which they appear in the tex document. Of course floats float, so why is the table numbering not adjusted?

I've read about \usepackage{fixltx2e} which fixes some similar errors - no luck. Also the flafter package doesnt seem to change anything. Admittedly i'm using a wild mix of longtable, sidewaystable, etc

Here is a MWE, well its rather long actually.

  • A few judiciously placed \clearpage commands might help, since they will clear any extant floats, as well. – Steven B. Segletes Jan 15 '14 at 16:25
  • clearpage works insofar as it puts the table 5 at last, thus the list sorting according to page numbers works. Its a fix but i'd rather rely on the automatism offered by tex to set tables and number them accordingly. – user1502044 Jan 15 '14 at 16:33
  • @outer_soup \clearpage is as automatic as it gets. (At least if you don't provide a MWE.) – Svend Tveskæg Jan 15 '14 at 16:47
  • @ Scend Tveskæg its not automatic in a sense of i have to manually add it... i'll have a look if i can string together a MWE that actually produces the misbehaviour. – user1502044 Jan 15 '14 at 16:49

    You are mixing non-floating tables (longtable) with floating tables and this can lead to wrong numbers. Beside \clearpage you could try \Floatbarrier from the placeins package to prevent that floats go behind a non-float. – Ulrike Fischer Jan 15 '14 at 17:21

Theortically it should be also possible to reset the numbering with automatical labels and comparision of the \pageref but someone would have to write the code first.
