Very unclear question: what should your text wrap around? Another textbox? A picture? Or do you mean text threads? The part 'not around anything' is confusing as text always must wrap around *something* when you use textwrap...

This sounds like there is something preventing the text from breaking at the end of a line. Common causes are incorrect use of the No Break attribute or the use of non-breaking spaces combined with not allowing hyphenation.
I've also seen cases where the text size is too large to fit in the column width or left and right indents are so large they restrict the available space.
A screen shot of what you see would be very helpful....
What do you call it when you put text in a text box and expect it to move to a new line automatically when it reaches the edge of the box. I am talking about text within a box, not around an item. In Excel it's called wrapping text. My text box in InDesign is not doing this. When I reach the right hand edge of the text box the text disappears and the overspill icon appears on the frame, regardless of the fact that the lower part of the frame is empty.
Is that clearer?
Here's a screenshot. The new lines are the result of carriage returns. If I continued to type on the top line the text disappears and the overspill icon appears on the frame, regardless of the fact that the lower part of the frame is empty.
I found the no break option and have unchecked it. I'm now up and running. Many thanks.
No screenshot. You have to embed itin a post by using the camera icon onthe web page like this:
But if the existing text disappears when you get to the end of the line that's a pretty good indicator that No Break has been set as the default for all text (by setting it with no text selected) or as an attribute of yor paragraph style.
It's not uncommon for new users to think that applying No Break is the same as turning off hyphenation, but it isn't.
Ah! Now I understand, Text to wrap to the next line!
See you already got the answer, yes that 'no break' should not be in a Paragraph Style, only in Character Styles in my opnion. Good to see it is solved for you :-)
