### Graphic & Text aligned in one Beamer frame

I'm trying to display a graphic (pdf file prepared with tikz) along side of an itemized list of points I want to make about the graphic. But no matter what I try, the list keeps appearing above the graphic, and the graphic is being pushed down so it's only partly visible on the slide.

Here's what I've been trying:
• Insert > Float > Figure
Then inside the float:
• Insert > Graphics... > get pdf file, scale the graphic to 40%
• Then, working with the float itself, make sure Float Type is Figure and select from its settings what seems to make sense: Placement = left, Allow floating is checked, Width = 40%

Your help would be most appreciated.

Hi,

you don't need to use a floating figure environment, that isn't really useful on beamer slides. You could use \includegraphics directly. You could use a column(s) environment for placing images and text or a list side by side.

Here is an example:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Example}
\begin{columns}[t]
\begin{column}{.5\textwidth}
\end{column}
\begin{column}{.5\textwidth}
\begin{itemize}
\item Point one
\item Point two
\item Point three
\end{itemize}
\end{column}
\end{columns}
\end{frame}
\end{document}
