Is there any way to prevent a caption from being separated from the picture it describes when I export a Pages document to ePub/iBook format?

    Make the image Floating, Group with the text, make the group Inline.

    Group when objects are floating then insert the result as an inline one.

    So I'm having a similar problem, but none of the solutions are working for me.

     

    I'm creating an ebook from pages (using the suggested 'format' provided by apple), and I want to use images- such as a creative commons license picture- on the copyright page.  Yet when I convert this to an epub, the epub file moves this image to the left margin.  I've tried making the image floating but Pages won't let me group this image with the text, so the suggestion to make the image part of a 'group' isn't an option.  Am I doing something wrong?  How do you group a floating image with text?

     

    Any help is greatly appriciated.

     

    - Jeremy

    All they need to be is inline on two consecutive paragraphs.

     

    It is the neatest layout method as well. You manage the layout by using spoace before, after and line spacing, implemented with named styles in the Styles Drawer for both the image and the caption.
