Help. I can import photos and graphics OK but I can't get the text to wrap around the photos. Right now the photos just cover text. What's the secret?

Usually, I just move the text box because I often want to be able to layer text over other elements. Here is how you can "turn on" text wrap.

  • Choose Text from the Format menu, then select Text Wrap.
  • Select the appropriate option from the Text Wrap area.
  • Select the appropriate option from the Options area.
    A preview of your selection displays in the dialog box.
  • Click the OK button.
    The text wraps around the graphic according to your choices.

    Yes Sherzel,

    After you put the text in the text box, you would click on the text box to make sure it is selected, then follow the directions that lindarobin posted earlier in this thread, especially the part about selecting the appropriate option from the Text Wrap area and selecting the appropriate option from the Options area. Those selections would be made on the Text Around Graphic window that pops up after you choose Text from the Format menu, then select Text Wrap.

    After you've made the selections and clicked on OK, you would then move the text box next to the graphic image. The text should automatically wrap around the graphic image based on the selections you made in the Text Wrap and Options area (i.e. Wrap text around the border of the graphic, Wrap text around the contours of the graphic, and Tight, Medium and Loose options for how close the text will wrap around the graphic). If you select the Text ignores the Graphic option in the Text Wrap area on the Text Around Graphic window, the text will not wrap around the graphic.

    When I tried Text Wrap, though, I did discover that the text would not wrap properly if the text box was layered over the graphic image. So, I had to right click on the text box, then select Layer then either Send to Back or Back One Layer.

    Sherzel,

    In addition to what I said before about the need to layer the text box behind the graphic image, there's one other problem you might encounter. Sometimes, when you select the 'Wrap Text Around The Contours Of The Graphic' option, the text will instead wrap around the border (rectangular edge) of the graphic. That happens when the graphic has a white or colored background - because the 'Wrap Text Around The Contours Of The Graphic' option works only with graphic images which are transparent.
