how can I set a figure or a graphic to keep it's position across multiple slides in a presentation?

I'm using the \only command to show only an excerpt of an explanation underneath a figure/graphic. Since these excerpts don't have the same height, the figure/graphic's position changes. But I want the figure/graphic to keep its position and I don't want to use \uncover.

What do I need to do?

Here is an example where a rectangle represents my figure/graphic which doesn't hold its position.



  \tikz\draw (0,0) rectangle (2,2);

    \item[step 1]
    \item step, step, step
    \item[step 2]
    \item step two
    \item some more
    \item and even more
