Right now, when I have multiple floats, the floats will all (mostly

Snippet of current code:Any help would be greatly appreciated, I can't
figure out the floats quickly enough.

You need two things:


- the float has to be specified inside the block with the text

- the block needs clear="end" in order to flow after the previous last float

This end result is what I mocked up and works in Antenna House:

<flow flow-name="frame-body" font-size="40pt" clear="end">

      <block clear="end">
        <float float="end" intrusion-displace="block">
          <block background-color="silver">F111</block>
          <block background-color="silver">F111</block>
          <block background-color="silver">F111</block>
        </float> B222 B222 </block>

      <block clear="end">
        <float float="end" intrusion-displace="block" clear="end">
          <block background-color="silver">F111</block>
          <block background-color="silver">F111</block>
          <block background-color="silver">F111</block>
        </float> B222 B222 B222 </block>

</flow>

I hope this helps.
