Interference from images / figures

Is there some special information that I’m unaware of about how to deal with figure lines in a text that are currently interfering with synchronization files?

I decided to try just putting fig into my label text file wherever a figure appears … nothing to read … but I had nothing to lose. And that solved that problem. The figures/illustrations no longer interfere with the synchronization. But I still am having trouble in that the synchronized text, while highlighted properly, does not scroll up in at least some of the apps.
