Chapter 20. TEXT EFFECTS > Working with Text and Graphics

Working with Text and Graphics

FreeHand lets you position graphics so that the text automatically flows around the graphic. This is called text wrap.

To wrap text around a graphic element:

1.
Select the graphic element you want the text to wrap around.

2.
Move the graphic so that it is in the proper position in relation to the text.

3.
Make sure the graphic is in front of the text block.

4.
With the graphic still selected, choose Text > Run Around Selection. This displays the Run Around Selection dialog box 22.

Figure 22. The Run Around Selection dialog box lets you enter the Standoff distances around an object.


5.
Click the Runaround on icon to display the Standoff distances fields. The Standoff is the space between the text and the edges of the graphic.

6.
Enter the standoff amount for each side of the graphic.

7.
Click OK when you are finished. The text automatically flows around the graphic 23.
