Add floats in Lyx without overlapping with other data [duplicate]

I am trying to add figures and tables in Lyx. But, figures and tables overlap with other textual data. Below I have added images of the problem. Could someone help to solve this issue?

• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – Martin Schröder Oct 29 '16 at 14:07
Simply go into the floats options and tuck the "span columns"option. This turn the float to a \figure* or\table*.
