I came to a problem similar the the one posted at:

Longtable and floats: wrong table breaks on pages with floats (part 2):

There is even a solution posted at:


but this solution dates from 2003 and I do not know how to implement this solution within my longtable.sty file that I got from my TeXLive installation (see next code). Any ideas how to solve this old problem again? My long table row is ignoring the bottom margin and it is just writing under that margin.

  • Sorry for that. But, I still don't understand how to implement the mentioned solution into my longtable.sty. My Latex code is generated from scalatex – Jose Cabrera Zuniga Feb 7 at 21:21
