I'm trying to force the images and tables in PDF generation (via memoir packages) to render where they are defined. I'm not a LaTeX expert, but my understanding is that the behavior is defined via the '\begin{float}[⟨loc⟩] ... \end{float}' macro, where '⟨loc⟩' is one or more of of 'b', 'h', 'p', 't', and '!'.

From the best I can tell from the sources, the '⟨loc⟩' definition is hard-coded to 'htbp'.

Is there a way via the "LaTeX Input" metadata that this behavior can be overridden?

    There's not a way to use metadata to change this. You would have to modify the source, or use LaTeX to redefine the float environment (Google and LaTeX user groups would be the best way to get more information on this).

    Changing the MMD source would be easier, but the LaTeX approach would work across future versions of MMD.
