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?
If I pick the option for an object to not be affected by text wrap, it won't be affected by the wrap of its own layer as well. So I can't use that.
Because the text isn't going around the edge on all sides. It's left aligned and the only part that wraps is the right hand side so I need a different text frame for that.
Looks like there is no way of doing it :/
Maybe if you show us a screen capture of the page we can see what you want to do and find a way.
Unfortunately I am restricted by a confidentiality agreement on this project. But there were some other changes that needed to be done so I didn't need to do that anymore. I will investigate this should I have the same problem again.
Thanks for the help so far though.
Right click on Layer Options in Layers Pallette - "Surpress text wrap when layer is hidden" might help.
I'm wondering if is this still an issue for people?
I don't want to assume that everyone has made the jump to CC but, if you have and this is still an issue, I've just gotten the upper-layer text object to flow over an object with a wrap applied to it.
- Text Frame Options
- In the menu box, lower left ...Select, "Ignore Text Wrap"
I think you changed from Quark Xpress to InDesign. In Quark text wrapping does not work with text above images. You could change InDesign preferences to the same behavior as Quark has. But I strongly recommend not to do that. Due to problems with Alpha transparency above text I recommend to put images in layers below text to avoid rasterizing text.
It is better to do it with text frame options and items, which have no text wrap, assign to ignore text wrap.
Best practice is to create Object Styles for the different behaviors and for any kind of image and text wrapping. You can save an example object with its style in a (CC) Library for the use in later documents.
