# Enforcing sequential order of figures and marginfigures in tufte-book

Traditional figures (in the main body of the text) and margin figures are occasionally typeset in non-sequential order in tufte-book. How can the sequential order be strictly imposed? I've tried

\begin{figure}[h]
...
\end{figure}

for the traditional figures, but even that doesn't always ensure the floats are typeset in sequential order.

• It will be difficult to answer this question if the problem only occurs occasionally. Can you provide a minimal working example (MWE) in which the figures are placed out of order? – erik May 10 '19 at 21:40
• Sorry... no minimum working example. The problem arises in complicated situations when the size of the figure and the location of the marginfigure are such that LaTeX moves the figure ahead (or behind) the marginfigure, which has different size and constraints. – David G. Stork May 11 '19 at 2:47
