Just spent an hour formatting a floating text figure in Word. My goodness, why do people pay for this product? In LaTeX, I just tell the engine I have a figure, or a table, and it floats it for me, and cuts the text scroll appropriately. I don’t want to position the figure, I just want it where it belongs relative to the text. What you see is all you get, I guess.
So I have some more gray hairs, and will get more every day until this document is done.
