I have been using float:table as my default for tables. I insert a float:table, then in that float I insert a child document (as input) that contains all my latex code for the table. This works fine but puts each table on its own page. I would like tables to flow with the text. That is have tables take up as much or little space as it needs and for text to continue. I currently use the endfloat package to put all my tables at the end of the document so one table per page is fine but I would like to convert it now to be part of the text. Here is an example of a document that does this:

    right-click on float:Table and go to Settings. Unclick "Use default placement" and click "Here definitely". If you have other problems, please post a LyX minimal example: wiki.lyx.org/FAQ/MinimalExample
