I am going to submit a paper on arxiv, but I have a problem in the pdf generated by arxiv. It copies all my figures at the end of the paper. I want to remove those figures and just have them at their proper place.

    Not sure, but if they ask it like this, they probably have their reasons and they don't want you to change this behavior. Just add "[Figure 4 about here]" texts and you are ok. They will use some method to scale and place the figures that (this method) is supposed to be their problem... – koleygr Mar 31 '18 at 20:13

    Remove the figure environment and apply the caption package, replace \caption{foo} by \captionof{figure}{foo} -- the figures appear at the position you stated them. – user31729 Apr 1 '18 at 9:14

Does Arxiv restrict the use of the float package? You can typically force figure placement with


in your preamble and use the H specifier



around your figure.

  • The instructions at Arxiv do not state what package is used. The instructions recommend that figures be included in-line simply using \includegraphics. This may mean, the use of the figure environment and floats is to be avoided. I've upvoted the answer from @ChristianHupfer accordingly. – Jeffrey J Weimer Jul 30 '18 at 13:24
