Yes. Click on the image in your content and then in the editor toolbar click the left or right justify button. The text will then wrap around the image.

That does the trick! Thanks

That works only temporarily. When I leave page edit mode, text is no longer wrapped around the frame of the diagram.

Both @FAK and @Tim Penner1 are right, for me it did the trick, although at times (just a couple cases so far, nothing too annoying at this volume), the display mode would not work or it would be misaligned. For this cases, I reopened the Edit mode, re-set the text, save, and there it was fixed. 

Hopefully you get paid to report the bug ! cheers

Ahhhhh - kind of like in WordPress... i remember struggling with that. :D

My first approach was to try to get the image and the text into a two cell table with no borders, like I often used to do in html or mediawiki.

Turns out borderless tables is not something Atlassian though useful...

 

Many thanks for this answer.

Very cool feature. For this to work, I had to drag the image above the paragraph I wanted to wrap around it.
