# Placing figure inside itemize environment with text floating around it

I want to creat a slide with a logo at the right and the logo is supposed to start with item one in an itemize environment and extend down to item three. This is what I have:

I used floatflt for this, but the figure starts in the frame title and does not go into the first three items.

The following is a minimal example (without beamer loaded):

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{floatflt,graphicx}

\begin{document}

{Organisation und Softwareentwicklung für OA-Bücher}

\begin{floatingfigure}[r]{0.3\textwidth}
\centering
\includegraphics[width=.28\textwidth]{Logo_LSP_blau}
\end{floatingfigure}

Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text ySome text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text

\begin{itemize}
\item

%%  \vspace{-16pt}
%%  \centering
%%  \includegraphics[width=.28\textwidth]{Logo_LSP_blau}

• I assume the lower boundary of the image should be at the first \item line, not the top boundary? The \label is useless without \caption – user31729 Sep 20 '15 at 10:45
• The top boundary should be at the top boundary of the first itme line and the fiure should span the first three items. So the bottom of the figure may be at the bottom of item three. – Stefan Müller Sep 20 '15 at 10:52

For preparing slides, the beamer class is typically being used. To place the image on the right place without interference with itemize, one can use the tikzmark library from tikz package. At the end of the phrase (zur Zeit 17) in the third \item, we set a \tikzmark{bottom} to which we refer afterwards when placing the image.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{lmodern,tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{tikzmark}
\begin{document}

\begin{frame}{Organisation und Softwareentwicklung für OA-Bücher}
Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text ySome text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text Some text

\end{itemize}

\tikz[remember picture, overlay]{\node at({pic cs:bottom})[anchor=south west,yshift=-.7ex]{\includegraphics[width=.25\textwidth]{Logo_LSP_blau}};}
\end{frame}

\end{document}


• Cool! Thank you very much! I have \pausecommands after the items. This has the effect that I see the logo only after I uncovered the third item. I tried to put it into \visible<1->but this did not work. – Stefan Müller Sep 20 '15 at 15:26
• Got it: placed the \tikzmark command at the first item, put the \tikz command after it and positioned the image accordingly. Thanks a lot! – Stefan Müller Sep 20 '15 at 15:33
