Subject Re: Place image at top of page

> If you want displaying the image exactly on top of the second page?
Yes, that's what I want! :-) I want to place an image at the top of a page, no matter how
many paragraphs I have. I want to place it at the top of the very page, where I put the image,
just like you do it in latex with

begin{figure}[t!]
…
\end{figure}

That's very much appreciated. Thank you so much!

You'll also see that paragraph 20 breaks at the end of page 1 and continues at page 2. I want
to place the image at the top of page two, so right in the middle of paragraph 20.

The float also disappears from the output PDF.
