# How do I keep one figure in its place and move the rest to the end?

I am working on my thesis with many chapters. In one of it, I use a lot of figure and table. I have been able to use endfloat to send all of the figure and table. However, other chapter has only one figure and I want to keep it in the original position.

Is it possible to bypass endfloat to several chapter? Or should I use float and then use option p in the chapter in which I want to send all figure and table to the end of chapter?

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – user31729 Sep 19 '14 at 2:49
• if it is possible to avoid using a float for the single figure that you want to stay in place, you can place it directly in line, and use \captionof (from the caption package) to label it. of course, you'll have to manage the positioning and spacing manually. – barbara beeton Sep 19 '14 at 13:37

It seems that endfloat dose not provide an option to keep your figure unmoved. So a tricky way is to define another figure environment. But then they are using different counters.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{endfloat}
\usepackage{newfloat}
\DeclareFloatingEnvironment[fileext=lof,name=Light Figure,placement=h!]{lightfigure}
\begin{document}
Lorem
\begin{figure}
\rule{2cm}{2cm}
\caption{big box}
\end{figure}
ipsum
\begin{lightfigure}
\rule{1cm}{1cm}
\caption{small box}
\end{lightfigure}
dolor
\end{document}
