InDesign CS6 - How to Set Text Wrap to Ignore Other Layers

Apr 12, 2013 2:46 AM

I have a layer with text wrap underneath another layer. I don't want the text wrap to affect the layer above but I want it to affect the current layer. The order of the layers and objects is as follows:

 

Layer 2

     text 2

     circle 2 (text wrap so text 2 stays inside)

Layer 1

     text 1

     circle 1 (text wrap so text 1 stays inside)

 

However the wrap from circle 1 affects text 2 as well and I don't want that to happen, while I still want it to wrap inside circle 2.

 

Anyone got any ideas please?

    You can't select a layer and have it not affected by text wrap.

     

    But you can select the object above the wrap, and in Text Wrap Options, check Ignore Text Wrap.

    You can set text wrap to only affect objects below in the prefs (but that's a bad idea if you use transparency, because text should always be above transparent objects if the design allows it). That said, you say the circles have text wrap applied to keep the text INSIDE them? Why not just use the circles as the text frames?

    Maybe if you show us a screen capture of the page we can see what you want to do and find a way.

    Right click on Layer Options in Layers Pallette - "Surpress text wrap when layer is hidden" might help.
