# Avoid spacing above wrapfigure

Why does the wrapfigure environment not allow for continuation of the sentence, but places white text above the figure instead? The picture is illustrating my problem.

By adding \fbox, I get the following result:

Here is a MWE:

\documentclass[12pt,danish,a4paper]{article}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\begin{document}
\lipsum

\begin{wrapfigure}[10]{r}{0.5\textwidth}
\centering
\caption{FunFun}
\includegraphics[width=0.4\textwidth]{Side_product_Furan.jpg}
\label{Carbenoid}
\end{wrapfigure}
\noindent
\lipsum
\end{document}


Do you see that the second \lipsum dosn't follow the first?

• Maybe it comes from white space at the top of the figure. You can check that inserting your figure in a \fbox. – Bernard Jun 5 '17 at 16:32
• Where is that command supposed to go? Before or after \begin{wrapfigure} ? – Gustav Wørmer Jun 5 '17 at 16:37
• After. If you use \includegraphics, it would be \fbox{\includegraphics{my graphic file}}. – Bernard Jun 5 '17 at 16:45
• you haven't shown your code so that makes it very hard to guess what in the code is forcing a paragraph break, it looks like you are forcing a break after allowing but impossible to say – David Carlisle Jun 5 '17 at 17:36
• You CAN insert wrapfigure into the middle a a paragraph, but it has to be at a line break. – John Kormylo Jun 5 '17 at 20:22

You have given no clues about your input, but it looks like you have the first form, with a paragraph break mid-sentence, and you want the second form without a paragraph break after "allowing"

alkynes. Given the oribital discussion above, the
carbene would be expected to react in the singlet
state and therefore in a concerted fashion.
