The following preferences determine how your text wrap behaves:
When adding a text wrap to a picture, make sure you add the text wrap to the picture frame (selected with the Selection tool) and not the picture itself (selected with the Direct Selection tool). If you do the latter, the text will wrap according to the picture's uncropped dimensions rather than its cropped dimensions.
Figure 17.9. Text Wrap Preferences.
Figure 17.10. In example A Justify Text Next to an Object is turned off; in example B, this preference is turned on.
Figure 17.11. In example A, Skip by Leading is turned on, causing the line after the graphic to move down to the next available leading increment. Example B shows how the text looks with Skip by Leading turned off.
If you are converting a Quark document to an InDesign document be sure to carefully check any text wraps. Because InDesign and Quark handle text wraps/runarounds differently, you may see differences between your original and the converted document.
Figure 17.12. Suppressing a text wrap.
Figure 17.13. Hidden Layer.
Figure 17.14. An inverted text wrap. The text is running inside the image shape, in this case a "Z" that has been converted to outlines (see Chapter 18: "Type Effects.:"), and put on a separate layer, which is then hidden.
Inverted Text Wraps
Every once in a while you might want to make the text wrap within the graphic shape, rather than around it. To do so, simply check the Invert box on the Text Wrap palette. This works best with simple shapes that allow for left-right reading of the text. It also helps if the type is a solid blockwithout paragraph breaks and indentsand tightly leaded and justified so that it better defines the object shape.
