Please let me have your comments on the following. It isn't
implemented yet, but I'm pretty sure I know how to do it.
Location of figures
The @Figure symbol has a @Location option which determines
where the figure will appear. Its possible values are
PageTop The figure will appear at the top of
the following page, or, if there is
insufficient space there (owing to
other figures already present), at the
top of the first subsequent page with
PageFoot The figure will appear at the foot
of the current page, or, if there is
insufficient space there, at the top
of the following page and so on as for
PageEnd The figure will appear at the top of
a page at the end of the document (or
chapter, appendix etc. in the case of
ColTop As for PageTop, replacing `page' by
ColFoot As for PageFoot, replacing `page' by
ColEnd The figure will appear in a column at
the end of the document (or chapter,
appendix etc. in the case of books).
Display The figure will appear as a display at
the point it occurs.
AfterLine The figure will appear as a display
immediately after the line in the final
printed document in which it occurs.
TryAfterLine Preferably AfterLine, but if there
is insufficient space in the current
column, use ColTop instead.
Raw The figure will appear as an object,
with no extra spacing, at the point it
occurs. This is useful, for example,
for getting two figures side by side
in one display: use a displayed table
containing two raw figures.
The @Table symbol also has this option. The default
location is PageTop, but this can be changed by changing the
@FigureLocation and @TableLocation setup file options.
The numbers assigned to figures and tables, and their
ordering in any list of figures or tables, is based on where
they appear in the final printed document, not on where they
appear in the source files. This is better for the reader
in the unusual case of a fixed figure being overtaken by a
