I made a pie chart in my document. When it's not in a figure, everything is fine, the tikzpicture is between the two paragraphs I want. When I make it a figure, it goes to next page:

        \begin{tikzpicture}[nodes = {font=\sffamily}]
        \foreach \percent/\name in {
            81.5/Données reprises,
            18.5/Nouvelles données
            } {
            \ifx\percent\empty\else               % If \percent is empty, do nothing
                \global\advance\cyclecount by 1     % Advance cyclecount
                \global\advance\ind by 1            % Advance list index
                \ifnum3<\cyclecount                 % If cyclecount is larger than list
                \global\cyclecount=0              %   reset cyclecount and
                \global\ind=0                     %   reset list index
                \pgfmathparse{\cyclelist[\the\ind]} % Get color from cycle list
                \edef\color{\pgfmathresult}         %   and store as \color
                % Draw angle and set labels
                \draw[fill={\color!50},draw={\color}] (0,0) -- (\angle:\radius)
                arc (\angle:\angle+\percent*3.6:\radius) -- cycle;
                \node at (\angle+0.5*\percent*3.6:0.7*\radius) {\percent\,\%};
                at (\angle+0.5*\percent*3.6:\radius) {};
                \pgfmathparse{\angle+\percent*3.6}  % Advance angle
                \xdef\angle{\pgfmathresult}         %   and store in \angle
 \caption{Taux de propreté de la donnée}
 \label{Taux de propreté de la donnée}

Is there a way to solve this? Before posting, I checked the other questions, the solution mentionning the "float" is not acceptable for me because I don't want the space between paragraphs to change along the document.

Thanks :)

    "Float" is the keyword. It is the float option itself which sends your figure to the next page. – JouleV Feb 12 at 5:33
  • So what do you recommend? I don't want my paragraph to have random space between them. I could make my figure smaller, but it's small enough for me. – djcaesar9114 Feb 12 at 5:43
  • (i) replace center environment with command \centering after \begin{figure}, (ii) replace option [!h] with htb` , (iii) see if you can insert image earlier in text, (iv) provide complete small document which reproduce your problem. – Zarko Feb 12 at 9:58
  • IIRC, [!h} is automatically translated as [htp]. As far as I can tell, the exclamation point does nothing useful, like hitting elevator buttons over and over. – John Kormylo Feb 12 at 16:42
