# How to position a figure enviroment above footnote? [duplicate]

It's a simple question: I'd like to put figure on the bottom of the page, but above footnote. I'm using memoir, but with documentclass{article} the result is the same.

Example:

\documentclass[article]{memoir}

\begin{document}
Some text\footnote{The footnote}

\begin{figure}[b]
\vspace{2cm}
\caption{Bild 2}
\end{figure}

\end{document}


I don't want to use a process of trial and error for each figure in my document, "hacking" the position option with an [h].

• Removing [b] could help ;-) You could drop the figure environment and use \captionof{figure}{Bild 2} instead. (Needs caption package) – user31729 Aug 11 '16 at 20:35
• one could use Some text\footnote{The footnote} \vfill \begin{figure}[h] – Runar Aug 11 '16 at 20:40
• \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc} or (only in memoir) \feetbelowfloat – Ulrike Fischer Aug 11 '16 at 20:53

You can use \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc} or (only in memoir) the command \feetbelowfloat.

\documentclass[article]{memoir}
\feetbelowfloat
\begin{document}
Some text\footnote{The footnote}

\begin{figure}[b]
\vspace{2cm}
\caption{Bild 2}
\end{figure}

\end{document}
