With \setupbackend[export=yes] the image is placed "here" and never "right" or "left".
I "reported" this a while ago. The answer is that right or left are meaningless for the export and that the export is built somehow using the generated PDF. ... I believe that Hans' workflow includes controlling the export run by viewing the export PDF (in sumatra), so he has been reluctant to change the behavior.
Hi! Slowly recovering from the flu... So, this is already known. But if there’s indeed such reasoning behind, it really makes no sense at all! Even if Hans’ workflow is not capable of right or left placement, it’s easily achievable in HTML/ePub (CSS float: left/right), so it can’t generally be meaningless.
it has nothing to do with that but more with the fact that the actual placement can make the structure invalid
And I can’t accept that the option of exporting to XML would (more or less) drastically and needlessly change the print layout! At least _please_ make it an option!
ok, i'll remove the check ... but: don't bother to complain about invalid exported structured when it happens as i will not look into and/or fix interferences with the actual placement, which can be elsewhere due to lack of room or delayed placement due to margin locations (in that case you need to make a conditional sections in your document source)
Thank you! I’ll check and document it.
