Using break

Sometimes when using images it is useful to align text to each image.

 

picture of a daffodilDaffodil is a common English name, sometimes used now for all varieties of narcissus, and is the chief common name of horticultural prevalence used by the American Daffodil Society. The range of forms in cultivation has been heavily modified and extended, with new variations available from specialists almost every year. 

picture of a crocusThe genus Crocus is placed botanically in the iris family. The plants grow from corms and are mainly hardy perennials, and are found in a wide range of habitats, including woodland, scrub and meadows.

 

 

Rather than using carriage returns between "...daffodil" and "And here..." use the break command.  This will keep the text neat regardless of the screen width.  Try reducing the width of the screen and see what happens between the pictures above the and pictures below:

The top two images use break a break after the word "year", but the bottom version of the same images use carriage returns between the two images.  As you will see the gap between the top two images is minimal, but the break between the bottom two images grows forced apart by the carriage returns between the two images.

To use the break, move to the end of the text associated with an image, hit carriage return once then select the break icon break icon  Your cursor will then be taken down to the first available clear line after the image, now carry on typing.
