Graphic & Text aligned in one Beamer frame

Postby Gnosos » Wed Apr 07, 2021 7:12 am

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.

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:

      \adjincludegraphics[width=.8\linewidth, valign=t]{example-image}
        \item Point one
        \item Point two
        \item Point three
