Yes, me too. I found the best thing is to post on LaTeX stack exchange a short piece of context that shows one problem you are having. Tag it #context. Someone will kindly help. Repeat for your other problems.

I use layers a lot to avoid floats.

Good luck,

Hi everyone,


I’ve recently had to typeset a document that gave me some headaches with the floats. The floats where jumping around, appearing in a different order than in the source file, tables ended up split up at weird points, some positioning keys had not the intended effect (e.g. top), «page» moved the float more than seemed necessary for me... I know, TeX’s float positioning algorithm should be rather reliable and stable, and it’s quite possible that I’m messing things up in my setups–especially since my source files are XML.


Anyway, I’d like to learn more about the whole float issue. Is there anything particular I could read to learn more about the whole thing? Maybe I’m missing out on something fundamental...
