Wrap Text around Image

Is there a way to wrap text around an image?

When I import an RTF document the text that is wrapped around images gets placed below the image.


“Images in Scrivener are added inline, so they’re treated like a character as far as word-wrapping goes. Which means that text does not wrap around the image. To resize an image, right-click and choose Edit Image (Windows) or Scale Image (Mac).”

I saw that article before I purchased the program. I wish it did wrap. Maybe a future release?

There are no plans to add wrapping around images, at least not for the next major iteration - this is something left to dedicated word processors, as Scrivener isn’t intended to be a full page layout tool.

All the best,

My thanks to you all for your much appreciated advice. I guess that it’s 'back to the drawing board then; but, where there’s a will there’s usually a relative :slight_smile:; and , who knows maybe, eventually, I’ll start to enjoy that waterfall. Seriously, I really do appreciate the prompt replies to my query.

Sorry for the necro post, but since 6 years have passed, I’d rather ask again, Is this statement still valid? No text wrapping around pictures is to be expected, even with limited capabilities? :unamused:

That is correct. There’s been no change.

“KB” is the creator and lead developer of Scrivener. If he says something is out of scope, that’s pretty much the final word.


Newbie here,

Apologies for my lack of familiarity with the LL support logs, but I assume (when using Latex) the “Wrap Text around Image” issue is a non-issue when using the \begin{wrapfigure} and \includegraphics commands to do so?

Correct. In that case you are post-processing Scrivener’s output using another tool, and that tool can do whatever it wants.
