# How to decide figure placement specifier for the entire document

For figures there is posible to add placement spesifer like the following:

\begin{figure}[H]
\includegraphics{/path/to/figure}
\caption{}
\label{}
\end{figure}


Where [H] is the placement specifier that places the figure "here" relative to the text. How can I decide this of an entire document, is there any usepackages, etc?

• you can specify the default placement specifiers, eg make ht the default or whatever you need, but H is rather special it makes the figure a non-float, so it may not be set by the usual default mechanism – David Carlisle May 19 at 17:19
• How would i specify the default placement specifier @DavidCarlisle? – Niklas May 19 at 17:21
• \renewcommand\fps@figure{ht} (in a package or after \makeatletter) – David Carlisle May 19 at 17:23
• the only reason to use figure is to specify the content as a float, so [H] (which just redefines it to be a non-float) is a very odd construct really and not normally recommended (I say that as it was my idea:-) – David Carlisle May 19 at 17:25
• @DavidCarlisle yes you are right, looked in to it and it does make more sense with ht instead if H. \renewcommand\fps@figure{ht} worked fine, thanks for the reply! – Niklas May 19 at 17:30

\makeatletter

As he said it´s generally not recommended to use the H, instead use ht.
