# [OS X TeX] Lost floats

Thanks for the tip.  But no, it doesn't help.

Further observation:  If the item I quote below is simply included as an empty \item, I lose the floats.  If it isn't there, I don't.
Mind you, there are other (later) items in the list which don't seem to affect the floats.

Even more curious.  If I comment out the text for the equation* environment, the floats continue to disappear (so it is not the actual material inside the equation*).  When I replace the equation* environment with in-line equation (i.e., $…$), with the content of the equation* included,  the floats reappear.

Now, uncommenting more, later material (including some other equation* environments), all goes well, until I come to a list: an "itemize" environment, with several items.  Most of these items have no effect on the floats (i.e., they don't disappear), except for a single item
\item The statement that $\Levof{f}{c}\cap R$ is the graph of \phiof{x} means that the function
\phiof{x} is uniquely determined by \refer{eqn}{implicitfunct}.
(I am no longer trying to replace the macros here with their definitions, because in the past the content appeared not to be the problem. ) If the itemize environment has only this item, the floats disappear.  If I comment this out but include the other 3-4 items, the floats reappear.  And if then I again uncomment the single item (leaving the others uncommented)  the floats disappear again.

Are you using a [tbp] type of option in the floats? If so, try adding the "p" option (for page of floats).

Hope this helps!
