# How to have a wrapfigure not always be below section heading

I have noticed that wrapfigs always place themselves under a section heading, with quite a bit of white space. This often leads to my wrapfig captions being below the bottom margin and the white space is ugly. How can I have the wrapfigure appear next to the section heading?

\section*{Type IV Secretion System}
\begin{wrapfigure}[23]{r}[-10pt]{0.35\textwidth}
\begin{center}

\end{wrapfigure}
The C terminal domain of cagY has homology to a core complex member of the \textit{A.~tumefaciens} T4SS, VirB10~~(Figure \ref{fig:virb10_alignment_2bhv}). The T4SS has been widely studied and is ancestral....

edit: Ideally figure 3 would be on the previous page, but I was having trouble forcing that to happen as well (even with [H])

• Try to reduce the number [23]. It is the number of lines the wrapfigure will occupy. – user11232 Nov 18 '13 at 22:47
• Regarding your edit: wrapfig does not accept a 'H' specificator for the placement. In fact it is able to read 'r,l,i,o' and uppercase analogues, while the latter ones allow the figure to float - which is a little confusing because for all the other floats 'H' is doing this task. – Ruben Nov 21 '13 at 15:14
