2.
Choose Object >Text Wrap. This opens the Text Wrap palette .

Figure 10.24. The Text Wrap palette controls how text flows around an object.


3.
Choose one of the following options for how the text should flow around the object.

Figure 10.25. The five text wrap controls.


  • Bounding Box flows the text around the bounding box for the object.

  • Object Shape flows the text around the shape of the frame.

  • Jump Object flows the text to the next available space under the object.

  • Jump to Next Column flows the text to the next column or text frame.

4.
Check Invert to force the text to flow inside the offset path .
