Text Wrap

Any independent object in an InDesign publication can have a text wrap—a boundary that repels text—applied to it. Wrapping text around an object is something like the opposite of flowing text inside a text frame. When you flow text inside a frame, you want text to stay inside a path; when you apply a text wrap, you want to keep it out. To set the text wrap for an object, follow these steps (see Figure 6-49).

1.
Select an object—any frame or group—on an InDesign page.

2.
Display the Text Wrap palette, if it’s not already visible (press Command-Option-W/Ctrl-Alt-W).

3.
Click one of the Text Wrap buttons in the Text Wrap palette. InDesign displays the text wrap boundary around the selected object, and pushes any text falling inside the text wrap boundary to the outside of the boundary. If you applied the text wrap to a text frame, the text in that frame is unaffected by the text wrap boundary.

4.
Set the text wrap offset distances using the Top, Left, Bottom, and Right fields in the Text Wrap palette. If you’ve selected anything other than a rectangular frame, you’ll only be able to adjust a single field (the Left field) to set the offset distance.
