I was able to get text to wrap around the center image. But I also need the text to wrap around the square voids in this image, which here, it is of course not doing. I combined the square shapes in the background with the silhouette pictured here as a compound path using the "minus front" pathfinder tool thinking that if it was one object I could then convert the whole shape into a type container, but I soon learned that the "area type tool" will not work on compound paths. Any workaround on this? PS: clipping mask was no good because it cuts the text where the no-fill parts are as opposed to having the text flow about the un-filled areas. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Specify a text wrap.
See manual on the details (there are some you need to attend)
Very nice. So I made the background a type container and the "cut-outs" into objects in order to use the text wrap functionality. It worked!!! Thank you very much...
