Text wrap around table

Is it possible to have text wrap around a small table? Or have an image next to a table?

And the forum search engine really doesn't like the word table....

You might if you insert it as an image. But I don’t think so when you create it directly in Mellel (I may have missed something then).

Right now the only elements around which the main text of a document will wrap are text boxes and images anchored to a particular location on a page. And right now you can't create a table within a text box. So the answer to the first question is no.

Mellel does allow the insertion of images into tables. So although you can't literally put an image next to a table, you can make an enlarged table that spans the entire page, merge a selected group of cells to serve as a picture frame, and paste an image into that frame, using the rest of the table for ordinary table date. But your control on the position of the image within that frame is pretty limited.
