Chapter 4. Text Input > To wrap text around another box:

To wrap text around another box:

1.
Stack the text box that you want to wrap text around on top of another text box. To move a box to the top of its layer, select it, then choose Item > Bring to Front (F5)(read about layers in Chapter 16).

Wrapping all around

Normally, text will only wrap around three sides of a box within a column. To wrap text around all sides of a box within a column, select the box that contains the text that's doing the wrapping, choose Item > Modify, click the Text tab, check Run Text Around All Sides, then click OK. See page 192.


2.
With the new box still selected, choose Item > Runaround (Cmd-T/Ctrl-T).

3.
Choose Type: Item .

4.
Enter Top, Left, Bottom and Right values for the space between the text box and the type wrapping around it . If you're entering a value in points, you don't have to reenter the “pt”. Press Tab to move quickly from field to field.

5.
Click Apply to preview, make any adjustments, then click OK .

Figure 3. Normally, text will only wrap around three sides of a box that is placed within a column (unless Run Text Around All Sides is turned for the text that is wrapping—see the sidebar, above).


Figure 4. Text will always wrap around all four sides of a box if the topmost box straddles two columns.


The Vertical Alignment options affect the entire text box. Leading and inter-paragraph spacing, which are paragraph formatting commands, are discussed in Chapter 6, Formats.
