How can I put text on top of a graphic in Framemaker 11?

Sep 16, 2013 4:03 PM

Tags: #images #framemaker_11

I am using Framemaker 11. When I import an image from Photoshop (EPS file) and put a text box on top, I can't get the text to be on top of the graphic without jumping to the next page. Is there a setting that I'm missing in Framemaker? The image is just borders, like a frame, and I'm trying to put the text inside the blank space.

    Can you supply a screenshot of what you're trying to do?

    Possibly you must set the Runaround properties to Don't Run Around. Then the text will stick where it is.

    You could always use the Textline tool and apply the appropriate character format.

    I suggest you use the text frame tool (to the left of Arnis' supplied screenshot) and set the background of the text frame (the diagonal b/w lines below the text frame tool) to None.

     

    When all else fails, add the text to the graphic, save as PDF or other appropriate format, and place as needed.

    It's not clear what the page looks like when it's jumbled.

     

    Also, in your next screen shot, please turn on View > Text Symbols, and View > Borders, to make troubleshooting a bit less speculative.

     

    It's possible that there are other currently-invisible items on the page with runaround properties that are affecting the text.
