    PaddyD got a reaction from A_B_C in Text Wrap Issue   
    Ah - good idea. Hadn't thought of that! I was on a bit of a deadline, so ended up just using InDesign again, but going forward, I could definitely do that. But here's hoping they fix it so we don't have to get creative about workarounds.  Out of curiosity - I only noticed this bug with the latest version - was it there before? I never did attempt a complete document with it until now though...so not sure what I did and didn't try with older versions.

    Same problems here - completely inconsistent and unreliable results with text wrap. I posted about it in an existing thread here:
     
    It's definitely a bug - and a big one, that makes it pretty much impossible to use afpub right now for things like newsletters. I *know* we're not supposed to use beta software for "real" things but  most of us don't have time to beta-test in spare time on pretend things.  I was hoping to transition from ID for a couple of newsletters I do on a regular basis, but can't quite do it until this issue is fixed. I need my hair.

    Yes - PLEASE implement something like the OP is suggesting. Text columns are NOT what I need - I need LAYOUT columns - in the background. Pretty please, with brown sugar on it. A grid system is no substitute for the ease with which one can do this in InDesign, and it's a really basic need (heck...Quark had it back in the dark ages...).
