I have an external file containing figures.

I want to import this file as appendix, the latex (pseudo-)code is below


My problem is that floats are pushed to the top of the page, and the Appendix name comes in the bottom of the first appendix page.

[I'm struggling to decide what MWE code to provide]

Figures take 3 full pages. On the image, in the first page I have depicted Section name by the single line.

Current (automatic) float placement

current layout

Required (or more appropriate)

wanted layout

The file is automatically created from (some class) code, so I'm interested to keep it that way. It could be inserted to other documents, therefore I'm reluctant to add all those [b] or [h!] specifiers to figures (and I'm not sure these specifiers ensure the placement).

The section does not contain any text - only those figures.

    If you don't want your images to float don't use the figure environment. To insert an image exactly where is was mentioned in the code, use a simple \includegraphics command. If you need a caption for such an image, use the \captionof{figure}{...} command from the caption pakage.

  • Maybe you need a \FloatBarrier (from placeins package) patched to \appendix. See How to control the position of floating images?. May 21, 2020 at 8:18
  • In the end, I have dropped the figures and pushed everything into minipages.
