I'm using LyX and have figures in floats and wraps but some of them are too high on the page when converted to PDF and overlap with page numbers. Is there a way to avoid this and respect the text margins that are set?

Set the width and/or height of the image inside the fugure menu. Mouse over the image, then right click.

I guess i'll have to play with it because now it moved everything so that the image is by itself on the page even after gong back to the settings I had. :( But thanks! I thought the bounding box would crop it. – Dominik Apr 7 '11 at 19:36
