Figure next to an itemized List

Postby lyxer » Wed Sep 04, 2013 8:12 pm

Hi all,

I would like to place a figure next to an itemized environment but I'm not sure how to do that. I've tried several things but nothing worked. The only thing that seems to "partially" work is to place a box next to itemized environment an put the figure inside it. But the figure was either on top or below the list. Is there a simple way to do it? I've attached the LyX file with two figures.

I'd suggest either the wrapfig environment or the use of minipages. In the minipage case, you might try putting the list in a minipage and the figure next to it, or put BOTH objects in minipages and align them as you wish from there.

The wrapfig solution is generally intended for figures that float, but with text flowing around them; this may or may not be what you intend.

If you produce an image showing how you want the text layed out relative to the figure, I might be able to provide further insight.

Actually, the figure wrap feature does not produce what I want. Also, when I used two minipages side by side, the list and figure were not aligned, I'm not sure why?. However, I got better results using a table. I guess I'll stick with that for now.
