How do I make text sit on top of an image without it disappearing.

Dec 8, 2012 9:13 PM

I am currently copying and pasting images with captions from quark express files to indesign cs6 files.

Everytime I copy and paste these images the captions which are on top of the image disappear behind

the image.  How do I put the text back on top of the image?  and in general how do you put text on top

of an image without it disappearing?

    Your text frame has a text wrap applied to it. Open the Text Wrap panel (Window>Text Wrap), Select the text frame with the black arrow and click the top left icon in the Text Wrap panel.

    Try the same with the image frame. It's getting too late.

    This is probably a really bad workflow that will end up biting you. I've not actually been able to copy a an image box from Quark and paste it into ID to test, so I don't know waht youare doing, exactly, but odds are you are not pasting a link to the image (doe sit show a link in ID's Links panel?). If not, you should be building this from scratch or opening the Quark file directly in ID (up to version 4 with out a plugin, later than that requires the Q2ID plugin from Markzware).
