I can't duplicate the first problem, but it seems like the second might involve the wrap settings for the image.

Not many helpers here do ePubs. Also ask for help in the Creating ePubs forum

Do you actually have a return after the image and is the image inline, not floating?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 19, 2013 3:53 PM (in response to PeterBreis0807)
The images are all inline, but with no return after the image. If I have an image with caption wrapped left, adding a return adds it above the caption, which then moves down. The following Heading 2 is right up against the image. (This problem works with Body Text, as well.)
BTW, I reposted my original question to Creating ePubs, as fruhulda had suggested.

You need to separate the image from the text with a paragraph return.
As the image is inline that will place the image either above or below the caption depending how you have done it.
The reading order is as for all Latin text: top down, left to right.
The inline image can have line spacing the same as any text, using Exact will probably provide a more consistent result then Multiple.

I don't see how using Exact will help; I am using Single. And it's Pages'09.
I tried putting a Return after the image, but that only works if the wrapping is above/below, then the spacing associated with the following Style works OK. However, most of my images are wrapped left or right, which means the caption is at the side of the image. An added return thus goes _above_ the caption, and the spacing associated with the heading or text below has no effect, which forces whatever is below right up against the image.
I CAN go to the left part of the heading and add a return, but that adds too much spacing, i.e., the spacing associated with the heading PLUS an extra Return. It's not elegant.
SO, it has to do with wrapping left or right ...
THANKS for your help.
BUT, and I've just realized something, I also add a Layout Break to force the text from the side of the image. Could this be the problem?

I would think that the ePub would ignore the Layout break, it is not part of its specification to my knowledge.
If you have inline images, which ePubs require I presume so they can flow, then you need to separate them from prior and subsequent text to have the before and after paragraph settings to separate them.
Side paragraphs are only ever going to work if thay are a single line of text with no spillover.

I solved the problem by myself! All you have to do is add a SECOND Layout Break, and that clears the heading away from the wrapped image so that the spacing attributes can apply themselves.
So, add TWO layout breaks after an image!
