# Adding a figure to footnote as a float with footnote text wrapping around it

I'm trying to do this with the wrap fig package. But the figure float does not rearrange dynamically as I change the text in my document hence the layout, going above page number, out of the margin, etc.... Is there to tell tex to position the float accordingly to the changing environment... Hope I'm clear, and thanks!

    \documentclass{article}
\usepackage{blindtext}

\usepackage{graphicx,wrapfig}
\graphicspath{/Users/haimbook/Desktop/}
\begin{document}

This is a foot note \footnote{
\blindtext

\begin{wrapfigure}{l}{8cm} % 15cm is usually too wide to have the figure next     to text
\centering
\includegraphics[width=.7\linewidth]{example-image-duck}
\caption{figure}
\end{wrapfigure}
\blindtext}
\end{document}


• Please provide code that shows your problem. I tried adding two \blindtext before This is ... and another just before \end{document} and all looked good to me, just as your original MWE did. Nov 9, 2021 at 19:01
• what do you want to change about the output shown? Nov 9, 2021 at 19:10
• While footnotes can break across pages, wrapfig cannot. Worse, since it is overlaid onto the page, no space is reserved. I believe you could put the wrapfigure and the text together inside a minipage, but the whole thing would not break then. Nov 9, 2021 at 19:19
• Understood. Do you see a way then to obtain what I would like to obtain? With a different package? Thanks

• You could format a footnote to fit the page, but it will not be automatic. Footnotes are formatted when they are created and copied into \footins (savebox). Page breaking uses \vsplit on \footins. Nov 10, 2021 at 4:10

This shows how to start wrapfigure in the middle of a paragraph in order to fit the footnote to the page,

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{showframe}

\usepackage{graphicx,wrapfig}
%\graphicspath{/Users/haimbook/Desktop/}
\begin{document}
\noindent\rule{\textwidth}{25\baselineskip}

This is a foot note \footnote{%

\lipsum[1]}% end of footnote

\lipsum[1-8]
