Hi Andrea,


There is no default that will work in all situations. A default of [ptb] will typically generate some pages with just a figure and lots of white space. I make a lot of latex documents and I find the path of least resistance is to use a default of [htb!] and pay attention to the large figures so they don't float to the end and take the other figures with them.

All the best,
Tom

I could not understand why on earth my pdf had all the images after the
whole document.
Then I found this:

and found out that the default for a figure was
\begin{figure}[ptb]

while in the generated latex file from org I had
\begin{figure}[htb]

So I changed to the default and now it works fine...
Isn't that default maybe a bit dangerous?

The fact is that if the first image doesn't fit "here" it will be
printed late and all the others after.


I might also just use the latex code here for these things, I don't care to export to other formats, it's just nicer to look if it's in org syntax
