# Wrapfig and Minipage not working in Beamer

Trying to employ the minipage and wrapfig packages to get itemized bullets to wrap around an image; however, the image is thrown to the next page by itself. Is there anything in the code below that would cause this to fail?

\begin{frame}[allowframebreaks]
\begin{itemize}
\item Important as an indicator species biological model in aquatic toxicology studies, similar to the Canary in a coal mine.
\begin{minipage}{\linewidth}
\begin{wrapfigure}[t]{l}{0.3\textwidth}
\end{wrapfigure}
\end{minipage}
\end{itemize}
\end{frame}

• Yes. See here why it fails and here how to make things wrap in beamer. – user121799 Sep 7 '18 at 0:50
• is there a minipage package? or are you using the standard minipage environment? It is hard to see as you have not provided a usable example. A minipage around a wrapfig would presumably always stop the wrapfig environment working with or without the beamer class being used. – David Carlisle Sep 7 '18 at 7:08
• The cutwin package resolved the issue. thx! – user62494 Sep 7 '18 at 15:18
• BTW, wrapfigure does not support a [t] option. It was expecting a number there. – John Kormylo Sep 7 '18 at 15:23

For some reason, just adding text to the minipage fixed most of the problem.

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
