How do I make a paragraph clear a previous float?

asked 2016-10-10 01:32:26 +0200

In CSS I can use the "clear" property to force a paragraph to go after a floating object. How can I do the same in LibreOffice?

Case: if a question in a questionnaire has a wrapped object and the object is too big to fit in the question space, I'd like to force the next question to go absolutely after the floating object if the object is too big.

A similar option does not exist in LibreOffice. I usually use one of these workarounds:

  • Check the option "First paragraph" in the Wrap settings of the object. Then exactly one paragraph will float besides the object. The next paragraph will be after the object.
  • Increase the "spacing below paragraph" of the last paragraph by the side of the object, so that the text height is nearly the same as the object height.
  • Put text and object into a 1 row, 2 column layout table.
