I have a document with about 90 floats that are a mixture of single and double-column width. It seems that the double-column floats interfere with the placement of the single-column ones, and therefore most right columns come out empty. Is it possible to have floats appear across rather than down each page? The sketch below shows the desired and the actual placement of floats.

    You could put 1 + 2 inside one float environment. – Ulrike Fischer Oct 11 '18 at 9:18

    If you don't need the floating, but them besides each other in minipages and use \captionof from caption package – aloneprism Oct 11 '18 at 9:48

    if you know you want them in a continuous list then they should not be floating at all. – David Carlisle Oct 11 '18 at 12:44
  • You could also pair 1 & 2 in one float, and 4 & 5 in another. You can have more than one \caption in a float, but each should be in different minipage. I would put them all in one [p] float. – John Kormylo Oct 11 '18 at 14:21
  • If the floats are figures, would the subfig package help? – murray Oct 11 '18 at 14:24
