# Issue with placement of figure using wrapfig environment

As seen, I have used wrapfig package. However, I can see the fifth point (in the image attached) covers only half the width of the page. But that shouldn't happen, it should cover whole line. I do not know what wrong I am doing. Any hints? And also the placement looks bad, thereis lot of space at top and below of figure. Can I also reduce the gap between text and the figure?

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{wrapfig}

\begin{document}

\par The TCP/IP based communication between the client and the server is through sockets. A browser enabled with WebGL is used for the rendering process at the client side. The volume rendered is displayed on the canvas. The interaction is done on the canvas and volume is rendered and updated back to the canvas.

\par The system interactions flow of architecture-I is shown in Figure.~\ref{flow1}. The step by step interaction flow are given below:
\begin{enumerate}
\item The server is always listening on sockets for any client connections.
\begin{enumerate}
\item User clicks the link {\lq}Downlaod Volumetric Dataset\rq.
\item The client connects to the server and requests for the dataset.
\item The server receives the request and sends the requested dataset.
\end{enumerate}
\item Continuous canvas interaction
\begin{enumerate}
\item User interacts with the canvas continuously.
\item The client renders the volume and keeps updating the canvas with the   rendered image until the interaction stops.
\end{enumerate}
\item When user interaction stops, the client also stops rendering.
\end{enumerate}

• I'm sorry, but I don't understand your problem. The fifth point of what? Where? Dec 1 '16 at 18:17
• wrapfig explictly does not work adjacent to latex lists, see the package documentation. (you don't ned \par in the source, they do nothing after the blank line) Dec 1 '16 at 18:30
• @Bernard : Fifth point in the image. Sorry for creating confusion Dec 1 '16 at 22:21
• @DavidCarlisle : Ya, but you can see that 4 (a) and 4(b) sentences are normal. I mean they cover whole width of the page. However, the the fifth point breaks at half the width of page and continues in next. I do not understand this issue. Dec 1 '16 at 22:24
• the list started wrapping is using the same width so 4 and 5, the nested lists each do their own things so 4a and 4b go wide but 5is back in the list that had started wrapping so... Dec 1 '16 at 22:29

Here is a work-around: I split the enumerate environment in two, using the resume* key from enumitem. I also slightly improved the layout of the nested enumerate environment:

    \documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{enumitem} \usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{wrapfig}

The system interactions flow of architecture-I is shown in Figure.~\ref{flow1}. The step by step interaction flow are given below:
\begin{enumerate}
\item The server is always listening on sockets for any client connections.
\begin{enumerate}[wide=0pt, leftmargin=*]
\item User clicks the link {\lq}Downlaod Volumetric Dataset\rq.
\item The client connects to the server and requests for the dataset.
\item The server receives the request and sends the reques\-ted dataset.
