# Floating figures collide

I've been using \usepackage{floatflt} with \documentclass{article}

\begin{floatingfigure}[l]{4.5cm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.21]{image}
\end{floatingfigure}


but when you use it twice or more, it says a warning message that figures 1 & 2 collide.

When I used it the third time, it doesn't show the figure. How to fix this?

Example:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{floatflt}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

\begin{floatingfigure}[l]{4.5cm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.21]{p1}
\end{floatingfigure}
\lipsum[1]

\begin{floatingfigure}[r]{4.5cm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.21]{p2}
\end{floatingfigure}
\lipsum[1]

\begin{floatingfigure}[r]{4.5cm}
\includegraphics[scale=0.21]{p3}
\end{floatingfigure}
\lipsum[1]

\end{document}


Where p1, p2 and p3 are the images.

• Which package, or document class, provides an environment called floatingfigure? Please advise. – Mico Jun 8 '15 at 21:05

• please make a small document that shows the problem (use example-image) so other people have the same input – David Carlisle Jun 8 '15 at 21:15
