I would like to use Mathematica to create all my documents for my high school math class. I cannot, however, find a way to copy and paste a diagram (let's say from Geogebra) and then place it where I want and/or get the text to wrap around it. Any help?

    $\begingroup$ I don't think Mathematica is a good platform for such tasks because it can't properly export to PDF, doesn't properly handle bibliographies, takes undue effort to make references to equations and figures, etc. I always tell people to use LyX instead. There, you can use the wrapfig inset to solve your issue. And unlike other $\LaTeX$ frontends, LyX supports direct pasting of graphics into the document. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ There is a "SideCaptionArray" cell style used in the presentation templates that could help on this. But there is very little information about it. $\endgroup$ Jul 5, 2015 at 14:11

    $\begingroup$ It's a shame this isn't possible. With a little more work on page layout, Mathematica would be killer for writing and typesetting technical documents of all kinds, especially homework assignment handouts, exams, problem solutions, etc. in the mathematical sciences. $\endgroup$
