Wrapping figures in an article

I am trying to create a protocol and for that I though that article is a nice suitable document class.

My problem comes when I try to wrap an image at the left side of the text. I use:

\begin{wrapfigure}{L}{0.05\textwidth}

\includegraphics[width=0.05\textwidth]{question.png}

\end{wrapfigure}


I want to put that little image close to the questions I formulate: "Which complement pathways..."

When I compile the file I get two messages: "Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph" and "wrapfigure used inside a conflicting environment". So I guess that the article by having two different margins creates this conflict. When I change the document class to letter for example, the margins are broader but I lose the title and nice format. Does anybody have an idea how to use properly wrap in the article format?

I read that the error "Underfull \hbox (badness 10000) in paragraph" comes from a wrong use of "\\" and therefore, I stopped using them. Still the problems is there and I don't know what to do to make it disappear.

Any help would be really appreciated :)

My code looks like this:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[english]{babel}  % force American English hyphenation patterns
\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}

\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{wrapfig}
\usepackage{microtype}
\hyphenpenalty=10000

• It depends on where you want this inserted. Also, you might consider placing them in the margins (\marginpar). Jan 26, 2019 at 16:22

Is that what is wanted

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{lipsum,mwe} %<--- not needed. Just for dummy text an image
\usepackage{wrapfig,graphicx}

\begin{document}
\section{section}
\lipsum[1]
\begin{wrapfigure}{L}{0.05\textwidth}

\includegraphics[width=0.05\textwidth]{example-image-a}

\end{wrapfigure}
\lipsum[1]

\end{document}


• When I do that, the image comes to the bottom of the text. I thing it is due to two different margins: one for the title and another for the abstract. Jan 26, 2019 at 17:19
• I solved the problem by not using wrapfigure and using instead \hspace and creating a minipage next to it. \vspace{0.3cm} \includegraphics[width=0.65cm, height=0.65cm]{question.png} \hspace{0.2cm} \begin{minipage}{14.5cm} Which complement pathways are also known besides the AP? What do they have in common, what are the dint? \end{minipage} \vspace{0.3cm} Still... I am not 100% happy with this solution, because the image is some millimetres above the paragraph. I am sure, that wrapfigure should also work as I intended before... Someone knows how? Jan 26, 2019 at 17:37
