So sometimes I'd kinda like to position my floats (tables, figures) in specific places in a document (bottom of second column on the first page, top of the third page, etc) and have the text fill up the space around it, rather than having the floats (apparently very loosely) connected to where they are placed in the text.

I found this similarly-worded question, but the question allowed for the possibility of forcing the figure to be on the page that the text is on (which is how it was resolved). I'd like it if it were possible to even just have a list of figures and no text but still have the floats arranged how I want. Is there a package that does this sort of thing?


The LaTeX3 xor output routine has this functionality but note this is a highly experimental code. However it is available from the repository at
