I would like to have a symbol (own drawn and saved as SymbolforLinkStartRecording.png) at the left and the text at the right. wrapfigure is working well, but I do not know how to define the end of using space right of the icon. What command do I use to tell Latex: "now set the text under the figure?"

\begin{center} and \end{center} does not work.

\section*{Start the Recording}
\begin{center}
\begin{wrapfigure}{l}{0.1\textwidth}
\includegraphics[height=6ex]{images/SymbolforLinkStartRecording.png}
\end{wrapfigure}
Start the Recording with this link on the desktop
\end{center}

And I am looking for somathing like \begin{itemize} ... \end{itemize} but with own symbol for each item

\begin{itemize}
\item[picture1.png] first sentence
\item[picture2.png] second sentence
\end{itemize}

Or say it in other words: At the left a small picture as symbol. And at the right the explanatio of the symbol in words with text by using all known LaTex commands for text.

    it is hard to understand your question, it would be easier to understand if you made a complete small document that showed the issue, and you said what change to the output you want (you can use example-image as the image name as that is in the distributions for testing). wrapfig does not work in lists (including center als what is th eintent of \caption[start recording]{} it will say Figure: 2 in the text and Start recording in the list of figures? – David Carlisle Oct 10 '17 at 18:00
  • I deleted \caption[start recording]{}. it is not important for the question – user145365 Oct 10 '17 at 18:11
  • "wrapfig does not work in lists (including Center)". Then I am looking for something like wrapfig which is working in lists. – user145365 Oct 10 '17 at 18:13
  • why do you need wrapfig at all??, from your description (especially after the edit) just use itemize – David Carlisle Oct 10 '17 at 18:20
  • How can I use own pictures as Icons/symbols in a list of items? Sometimes with high 12pt, sometimes 120pt? And use the space at the right with all LaTeX commands? – user145365 Oct 10 '17 at 18:22

Just use the form that you suggest, but of course including the image not just printing the name so

\begin{itemize}
\item[\includegraphics{picture1.png}] first sentence
\item[\includegraphics{picture2.png}] second sentence
\end{itemize}

  • Ok, and how can I reach that - if the sentence is Long - the second line of text is moved in the way, that the first letter of the second line of text is in one vertical line with the first letter of the first line of text? – user145365 Oct 10 '17 at 18:39
  • @user145365 I'm not sure I understood but see the enumitem package that gives lots of possibilities for list layouts – David Carlisle Oct 10 '17 at 18:40
