I am laying out images in a text box in InDesign and there are times when the image I place moves that line of text down enough to where there the image doesn't overlap any text. And there are other times when the image doesn't move down enough and it ends up falling on top of text. I realized after some trial and error that the paragraph style that is attached to the paragraph where the image sits is what is affecting this behavior. I just can't figure out what in that style is causing that. I hope that makes sense. I've attached images to explain what is happening.
In this first image you can see that the paragraph mark is sitting at the bottom corner of the image. The paragraph style "faq answer" is applied here and the image sits under the line of text.
In this example, that same paragraph has the "heading" paragraph style applied to it, butt he image overlaps the text above it.
Text wrap on anchored objects works only on text following inline anchored objects, and only on text following the line holding the anchor for custom anchored objects.
In the first case the leading of the paragraph with the anchored image is set to auto, in the second it has a fixed value.
OMG! I knew it was something simple. Oi! After all these years of using InDesign I finally learn why the leading shows in parenthesis sometimes. Usually I see the word "Auto" in there if it's set to "Auto." Thanks tons!
