Chapter 10. Pictures and text > To wrap text around a box:

To wrap text around a box:

1.
A picture box must be on top of a text box if you want text to wrap around it. If the picture box is not on top, select it and choose Item menu > Bring to Front (F5).

2.
Choose the Item or Content tool.

3.
Select the picture box.

4.
Choose Item menu > Runaround (Ctrl-T).

5.
Choose Type: Item .

6.
To adjust the space between each side of a rectangular picture box and the text that's wrapping around it, enter numbers in the Top, Left, Bottom, and Right fields. If any other picture box shape is selected, enter a number in the Outset field.

7.
Note the preview in the dialog box and click Apply to preview the text wrap in the document window.

8.
Click OK or press Enter.

Tip

The current Margin color is also used to denote the picture's bounding box. Similarly, the current Ruler color is used to denote the clipping path, and the current Grid color denotes the Runaround border. You can change any of these colors via Edit menu > Preferences > Application > Display folder tab (Ctrl-Alt-Shift-Y).
