The options are grayed out until the object is actually anchored.
If you go to View > Extras > Show Anchored Object Controls you should see a blue box on the top right edge of the selected frame. Drag that blue box to where you want to anchor in the text.
Select what is already anchored
Group your items together.
Then use the Anchor Object.
Thank you! That is wonderful. It took me a minute to find the "blue box," because it showed up red, due to the layer's color settings, but I was able to simply drag it over! Beautiful!
I tried your suggestion, just to see if it would work and to provide other forumiers with feedback, and it did not. The options are still grayed out. I recommend following Peter's advice.
I think the Anchored Object options you're talking about only become available when the image is already anchored.
They are options for the Anchored Object.
You need to anchor the object then those options should not be greyed out.
