Text overlapping table float wrap

2009-05-04 Thread Jim Rockford
Hello.  I have a problem with table wraps that seems to have occurred for
other people as well.  On occasion, somewhat unpredictably, the document
text will not respect the presence of a table float (wrap mode) and will
overlap the table.  My understanding from reading this forum and others is
that this is primarily a problem with latex, not necessarily Lyx.  There
were some posts on the Lyx forum, prior to the release of the 1.6x family,
suggesting that this problem might be fixed.  As of version 1.6.2 I am still
having the problem.

I'm just wondering if this is of no surprise to the Lyx community.  Should I
expect to have these problems with table and figure wraps still, as of
version 1.6.2?

Thanks,
Jim

Wrap floats are in general not easy to handle, but this is a LateX issue. In LyX 1.6.x the wrap 
float support was however be improved. For the possible tricks with wrap floats, have a look at the 
EmbeddedObjects manual that you find in LyX's Help menu.
