The LaTeX placeins package
Version: 5.5 - Scientific WorkPlace & Scientific Word
The placeins package prevents floating graphics or tables from floating into the next section of the document or past a designated point in the document. The point is signaled by a \FloatBarrier command. The package successfully controls the placement of floating objects in DVI files, in PDF files, and in files created with the Portable LaTeX output filter. Thus, it has wider use than the float package.
Here's how to prevent floating objects from appearing in the next section.
Here's how to prevent a floating object from appearing after a designated point:
By default, the \FloatBarrier command is very strict. It prevents a floating object from appearing above the start of the current section or below the start of the next section, even though the floating object would appear on the same page as its intended section. Each restriction can be relaxed separately by using the above and below package options. The package is installed in the TCITeX/TeX/LaTeX/contrib/placeins directory.
