Anchored object with text wrap

Jul 11, 2013 11:18 PM

How do I create an anchored object with text wrap so that when there isn't enough space for the object in the current text frame (with text) , it automatically flows (text and object) into the next frame (and is wholly contained within the new frame)?

 

Is there a way to 'clear' an anchored object so that a particular paragraph style will start on a new line (instead of wrapping)?

 

Basically, I want a heading above both an image on the right had side, and text wrapped on the left.

Then I'd like another heading, with another image on the right, and text wrapped on the left.

 

I'd like it all to flow nicely into succeeding frames on succeeding pages when space is too limited for the content.

 

I roughly know how big the images are, I don't know how much text there is.

 

Maybe an explanation of the secret paragraph around the anchored object would help?

Thanks,

    An image that is anchored basically behaves like a piece of text - so you can put controls on the paragraph that the image is sitting inside and tell it to Keep with Previous or Keep with Next etc.

     

    You can explore those options yourself.

     

    And you might want to look at using an Inline Anchor - again you can find more about that yourself.

     

    Hope that helps.
