# Latex figure placement

1) figure placement (even with [!h])

LaTeX will not violate its typesetting rules.  What LaTeX does is keep a
queue of figures and place them as room becomes available.  Even if you
want to insist on putting a figure in a particular space, it may violate
typesetting rules, so TeX just won't do it.  One way that you might try
to get around this is to use the \clearpage command.  This forces LaTeX
to dump its image queue at the point in the file that the command is
called, instead of popping the image onto the queue.
