>> So my problems turned out to be a bug in the 5.2 f000 version I was using. By switcing to 5.2 m130 my floats are now working properly. I have a couple more issues that I'm trying to work out.
1) I have a situation where a table breaks and floats to the top and a figure also floats to the top of that page. Im getting the following:
Table 3-2 title (continued)
Figure 3-90 title
content of the table that flows to this page
2) when 2 half page graphics (multiple sheets set with subfig) land on the same page (grphics boxed) I get:
graphic sheet 1
top box line of grphic sheet 2
Figure 3-1 sheet 1 of 2
end of graphic 2
Figure 3-2 sheet 2 of 2
3) I end up with a graphic that takes about 3/4 of the page, there is about an inch of space and then short sentences for the rest of the section start.Not sure what is forcing this extra space.
So I've made good progress, but still have a couple more things to track down.
Yes, interested to learn more about this if you find out some good details
Our customer's problem was never properly solved. They have resigned
themselves to paging through every chapter they produce and manually move
the float reference tags around until the floats look right. That can often
take quite a few reformats and cursing to get right 😉
So, they weren't too happy about that, but we'll probably move them to an
APP (3B2) system in the not too distant future. That should fix their
