Hi Dimitry and other TV developers.
First off - thanks a lot for this great extension. I'm not sure whether this 
request truly belongs here, but since it's available with the standard page 
module, I hope I'm right.

I teach TYPO3 and have a lot feedback from editors in regards to usability 
etc. One of the things that truly confuses editors, is the list of CE you 
get to chose from, when you want to insert a new "text w/image" element.

The scenario is as follows:

User clicks the page module, then clicks the "insert new content element" on 
a specific page and is then presented with the list of CE, the user has the 
right to insert. Now, if the user want to insert text with images, there is 
strangely enough to icons, one with the description "Text with image below" 
and one with "Text with image to the right".

Now, every single editor I've had on a course asks me - What if I want to 
insert text with an image in any other position? Can I insert one with the 
image to the right? It confuses the hell out of them and isn't intuitive.

In the regular page module, there's only on "image with text element"-icon 
with a more general description. I think it would really help, if you'd make 
this simple usability enhancement to TV and only offer on text/w image and a 
more general description of what it does.

All the best
