This is of course a contradiction: `figure` and `table` are _designed_ to float, and will always have the potential to appear away from where you asked for them. Therefore you need something that behaves like a `figure` or `table` environment, except that it doesn't allow the figure or table to float.

The most straightforward way is to use of the [`float`](https://ctan.org/pkg/float) package; it gives you a `[H]` float placement option that prevents floating: ```latex \begin{figure}[H]

\caption{caption text}

\end{figure} ``` As the example suggests, such a `[H]` figure (or corresponding table) offers all you need to cross-reference as well as typeset. (The package [`here`](https://ctan.org/pkg/here) provides the same function, but is no longer recommended.)

However, you don't actually _have_ to use [`float`](https://ctan.org/pkg/float) (or [`here`](https://ctan.org/pkg/here)) since it is, in fact, doing rather little for you. You can place your figure as you please, with a sequence like ```latex \begin{center}

\captionof{figure}{caption text}

\end{center} ``` which relies on the `\captionof` command to place a caption without benefit of an enclosing float. That command may be had from the extremely simple-minded package [`capt-of`](https://ctan.org/pkg/capt-of) or from the highly sophisticated [`caption`](https://ctan.org/pkg/caption) package.

Using either method, you have to deal with the possibility of the figure or table being too large for the page. (Floating objects will float away in this circumstance; doing it by hand, like this, you take upon yourself the responsibility for avoiding _Overfull `\vbox`_ errors.

A further problem is the possibility that such fixed floats will overtake real floats, so that the numbers of figures will be out of order: figure 6 could be on page 12, while figure 5 had floated to page 13. It's best, therefore, either to stay with floating figures throughout a document, or to use fixed figures throughout.

If it's really impossible to follow that counsel of perfection, you can use the [`perpage`](https://ctan.org/pkg/perpage) package's command `\MakeSorted` command: ```latex … \usepackage{float} \usepackage{perpage} \MakeSorted{figure} \MakeSorted{table} … ``` and the sequence of float numbers is all correct.
