Wrap figure within a float

In the textbook I am writing, there are some floating boxes with text (I used tcolorbox to define them). I need to place a small picture in some of these boxes, with text wrapping around them.

To wrap around figures, I use the package wrapfig, but apparently it doesn't allow to wrap within floats. Any solution to suggest?

• tcolorbox is not a float, but it is a tikzpicture. – John Kormylo Oct 13 '17 at 18:57
• But you can make it a float by using the option float when defining the tcolorbox, can't you? – Massimo Oct 13 '17 at 22:03
• So does remove float fix the problem? – John Kormylo Oct 13 '17 at 22:11

You have given no information about what you tried, or what error message you got, so I can only note that wrapfigure works fine in floats.

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{wrapfig,graphicx}
\begin{document}

\begin{figure}[pth]

\begin{wrapfigure}{r}{2cm}
\includegraphics[width=1.5cm]{example-image}
\end{wrapfigure}

• You're right, it works. I am embarassed. In this case I think I can delete the question... – Massimo Oct 13 '17 at 18:24
• @Massimo no harm done:-) – David Carlisle Oct 13 '17 at 18:31
