# Shaped paragraph with centred picture (shapepar & cutwin)

I spent much time on this, but could not manage it or find a similar problem.

I would like to insert a picture in the center of this heart shaped paragraph, the text should be wrapped around it.

That's a MWE:

\documentclass[9pt]{minimal}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\usepackage{shapepar}
\usepackage{cutwin}

\opencutcenter
\renewcommand\windowpagestuff{\centering\includegraphics[width=2cm]{example.jpg}}

\begin{document}
\shapepar{\heartshape}
\lipsum[1]
\end{document}


Any attempt with the package cutwin leads to huge crashes. For example the following:

\begin{cutout}{a}{b}{c}{d}
\shapepar{\heartshape}
\lipsum[1]
\end{cutout}


Does anyone have a clue how to proceed? Thanks !

• (edited) That document gives me an error message about \cutout being defined both in shapepar and cutwin. Other versions of one of both of those, or is that not really what you have used? – pst Apr 8 '14 at 22:08
• its basically what I used. To my knowledge cutwin is integrated in shapepar. When I leave \usepackage{cutwin} out, it doesn't recognize "\opencutcenter", which is needed to center the pic. I know it is not very elegant, but just pressing enter gives at least some output. Should be renamed MNWE..^^ – Tobias Wille Apr 8 '14 at 22:19

• Are there any other packages (beside cutwin and shapepar) able to cutout or reflow text around shapes/images? – skan Feb 7 '17 at 15:27
