You could use an old and undocumented trick:
- Create an object style named "Place Gun Frame"
- Set the "anchored" settings of that style to "above line"
- import an image as usual
Afterwards you can rename the style.
For the 100% width you'll need a script i think
Hmm. That's still not quite right: I'm now getting a loaded cursor icon when I select the file, which I didn't before. Even when I'm in the Text Tool, inside a text frame.
And when I click on the right place in the text frame, it's still not obeying the style. In fact, it's not anchored at all.
I just rechecked it in CS6 on OSX. Works like a charm.
- please open this file: http://www.indesign-faq.de/files/2015/08/placegunframe.zip
- place the blinking cursor inside the text
- Hit cmd-D and select an image
Does that work?
The place gun frame trick works only when placing, not when pasting, but you can still create an object style with the anchored object settings and apply it to these images.
Your file exhibits the same behaviour, so perhaps it's an app setting somewhere that's wrong.
File > Place, and I get the loaded cursor. Hmm. Wierdly, I'm now getting this even after deleting the Style.
Yes, I think I'll try applying an Object Style after the fact. That's slightly quicker.
Ah. Bingo. Had to turn on "Replace Item" in file dialog.
That's working now, though I still have to re-size them. MAny thanks.
