Placement of figures

Hi, quite new to this programme, would appreciate help for my thesis.

I have a lot of figures in my document, if they are in the floating enviroment they move to bad places, if i display them its correct but they do not appear in the table of figures. I think one method is to force the float to stay at its position in the code as in:

\begin{figure}[H] \includegraphics[width=8 in]{Figure.pdf} \end{figure}   

but how to do you it for something like this:

\FRAME{ftbpFU}{3.749in}{2.9758in}{0pt}{\Qcb{{\protect\small gold

pattern 8/1988-6/2006 }}}{}{%

gold-intraday-20061027.bmp}{\special{language "Scientific Word";type

"GRAPHIC";maintain-aspect-ratio TRUE;display "USEDEF";valid_file "F";width

3.749in;height 2.9758in;depth 0pt;original-width 6.0416in;original-height

4.7919in;cropleft "0";croptop "1";cropright "1";cropbottom "0";filename 'NEW

DISSERTATION/Img/Final for scientific

workplace/gold-intraday-20061027.bmp';file-properties "XNPEU";}}


Thanks, Tom.

See Document 333 Using the float package with SWP/SW for information in using the float package with SW.  When saving with the SW/SWP/SN document type it should be sufficient to just have the float package present and change the placement option for the floating graphics to be here (only).

Hi George,

Thanks for the help, I've tried that method but the figures still move about as they like. I need them to stay under the appropriate heading. Is there any other way to do this?
