[scribus] Image moving with text

	Many thanks for these examples. I think it is better to avoid
inserting a newline, because if there are changes in the document it may
then be bad placed. 
	As already said, if there are only a few inline objects it is not a
problem. The problem is the time needed if there are many.

	Ideally the properties of an inline object should include specific
parameters like:
- use real object width Yes/no;
- use real object height Yes/no (at present time, the width of the object is
always used, never the height);
- Vertical offset in mm.
	These properties should then be accessible after placing the object
in a text frame.
	This would be great.

Here is an attempt (two attempts really) to do this natively in Scribus:


Both of these are made by superimposing Render frames with a LaTeX 
equation* on top of the underlying text frame, then setting text to flow 
around the render frames.
On the top I didn't bother to fiddle with linespacing.
In the bottom example, I fudged things by making a newline after "Par", 
then adjusting its linespacing to get the subsequent line where I wanted 
it to be.

So potentially there is a lot of fiddling involved, but maybe only if 
and when you want there to be.


* this is really rather messy in LaTeX:

$\bf{U_{eff} = \frac{U_{Cr\hat{e}te}}{\sqrt{2}} =
