# [R] sweave: graphics not at the expected location in the pdf

This is actually a LaTeX question, not an R (or even Sweave, strictly
speaking) question.

Here is what I have done. In the preamble, specify

\usepackage{here}

Then later on specify [H] when including a figure, as in:

\begin{figure}[H]
\begin{center}
<<fig=TRUE,width=6.5,height=4>>=
plot(x,y)
@
\caption{My plot\label{fig1}}
\end{center}
\end{figure}

Is the "here" package *required* in order to use [H]? I don't know. I
just found it mentioned in a LaTeX book, tried it, and it worked. The
most helpful book I've found so far is
Guide to LaTeX (fourth edition), by Helmut Kopka and Patrick W. Daly

And yes, Sweave is great!
