    Text Wrap Question


      I have a document that has a semi circle graphic in the center.  I have two articles on the page, one outside the semi-circle and one inside.  I have been able to get one side(text box) to follow the contour of the semi-circle but not the other. Any help would be appreciated.

          Looks like the frame on the left needs to be wider...

            I have made it wider but the text wrap assigned to the semi-circle (detect edges) doesn't pick it up.  The text wrap on the semi circle is set to wrap around obect shape - detect edges, invert.  If I remove the invert then I lose all of the text inside the semi-cirlecurve-page.jpg

              Perhaps you should show us some frame edges and explain how you've built this.


              I would make the yellow stroke an independent object and apply the wrap to that, selecting largest area for where to wrap, I think. You cannot wrap to both the inside and outside of a closed shape, but you could make the green area on the right a text frame and the text would naturally follow the contour, then add the wrap to that frame to push away the text on the left.

                I'd make the right hand text box actually curved, and make that curved text box with an external textwrap to push the box on the left.

                Like this:

                You'll need to turn textwrap on for the boxes that you don't want effected too, like your header and the names of the officers.
