# Making a tikzpicture a figure sends it to next page

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{figure}[!h]
\begin{center}
\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
\ifnum3<\cyclecount                 % If cyclecount is larger than list
\global\cyclecount=0              %   reset cyclecount and
\global\ind=0                     %   reset list index
\fi
\pgfmathparse{\cyclelist[\the\ind]} % Get color from cycle list
\edef\color{\pgfmathresult}         %   and store as \color
% Draw angle and set labels
\node[pin=\angle+0.5*\percent*3.6:\name]
\xdef\angle{\pgfmathresult}         %   and store in \angle
\fi
};
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{center}
\caption{Taux de propreté de la donnée}
\label{Taux de propreté de la donnée}
\end{figure}


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
