Publisher 1.7.3 - Wrapping hides text in superimposed window

Recommended Posts

I want to wrap text around an image, then superimpose a text window on the image - but the wrapping hides the text. Thus -

The image needs to have the main text wrapping round it but the caption has to be superimposed - yet the text disappears!

I can understand the logic for this but is there a workaround? 

Thanks.

Check the Text Frame studio panel while your caption Text Frame is selected. You should find an "Ignore Text Wraps" option there that should solve your problem.

Hang on - it's greyed out ...

Not for me, but perhaps there's something different about your setup than my experiment.

Can you share the document?

I've just copied the relevant page. 

If I click on the broken pot image and remove the text wrapping, the text in the grey box appears. The 'Ignore text wraps' and other options in Text Frame>General are greyed out. If I click on the main text frame they are live.

Something silly I've done, no doubt, but if you can tell me I'd be obliged!

Yes that's it. As I said, just silly ... I've been grouping stuff in PP so it's just another carry-over.

Thanks Joachim_L and Walt.
