I have read some things about this problem, but no where you see a really using solution for people with no so good technic.
Text wrap around images (png) should by a basic tool in Designer! 
I got on my Designer group many questions about this. And please don't come with answers to wrap around static objects like a circle.

Thanks, 
Harry

Er is geen textwrap in designer alleen in publisher.
Maar het werkt wel met het transparante gedeelte van een png

Or as a workaround, switch inside AD to APu, make the text wrap there and switch back. I think too, that text wrap is needed for AD - not everybody needs APu and AD seems to be capable understanding the text wrap that was applied in APu.

But you first have to use APub to have textwrap and there's no way to edit the textwrap settings in ADes
And you could use studiolink if you happen to have APub installed.

Sorry for being not too detailed. Of course you need APu and there is no way to alter the settings in AD. But isn't it interesting / remarkable, that AD understands the text wrap APu although not having a text wrap feature? Anyway, hyphenation and text wrap should be part of AD in my opinion (yes, plus other features).

Well one could say that publisher==designer==photo and some settings are stripped(hiding) from all three apps just to have its focus on the main objective.
So serif could have sold one product for 150 and called it a suite,instead they accommodated several user groups.
But you're right there could be more features shared in all apps.
I start out with APub and switch with studiolink and only if it is really necessary I use "edit in"

But where should such a request end?
Everybody could think of a feature from a single affinity program that could be great in the other but that would defeat the purpose of single programs altogether.

Ok vragen staat vrij ,ook ik kan wel 10 dingetjes bedenken die ik wil zien in één van de andere programma's.
Maar via de studiolink in publisher hoeft dat niet en kan ik zo overschakelen.
Dus misschien komt het erin maar pin jezelf er niet op vast nu je het hebt gevraagd.

Yes, but Serif already answered this. For example here:

The different apps need different capabilities, otherwise they'd all be the same app.

We consider that to be a feature for Affinity Publisher. So you'll need Publisher to create the text flow and then you will be able to open the same file and edit it in Designer if you want

Affinity Designer does have the ability to wrap text inside a shape or curve.

That makes sense though I'm not sure they're not all the same app with hidden capabilities already. What they're doing with Studio Link and Edit in... are unprecedented as far as I can see, so they're going to have to figure out how to keep both their users and their coffers happy.

In any case, Designer provides enough high-level typographic features that a user might expect text wrap as well. Personally I'm looking for hyphenation and multiple columns. The limitations to the type tools seem like a carrot dangled in front of you then snatched away as you try to use them.

There are enouch users who have no need or work for publisher, but use designer for everything. Then you need for one thing what has been normal a basic tool a complett piece of software for it. Thats why I wrote this question.

linked text boxes and vaseline grid is another feature that is needed for posters

Would text snap to a vaseline grid or slide off it?

I agree on all points raised here...even though I also have APub.

Thanks again, but still see no question, just statements like “got on my Designer group many questions”, “should by a basic tool in Designer!” and “designer needs this tool to[o]”.

It was simply a hidden joke: b-/v-aseline

[There are so many posters with wriggling text lines, so we have to thank Serif for the “decision”, that posters should be made in APub …]

I would not recommend making an English joke in a thread whose initial post and subsequent replies were clearly not made in a first language. Nor would I recommend asking where the question is when this is a feature request forum, where the user is saying there is a need to achieve something in this software that is currently hard to achieve. Most posts in this forum are not questions and I would suggest that you gave this user more leeway over the use of precise English.

They need it/other apps if they want to achieve things quicker and better, because the tools are missing in AD.

i could probably live without linked text boxes if the columns feature was fairly robust I think. But there is nothing worse than putting hours into a layout in one program and realizing it can't be completed because that software can't go where your ideas took you. Starting all over in a different app is never pleasant.

Sorry, but why would you need to start all over with the Affinity range? All files made in any affinity app are editable and savable in any other app in the range (across any platform)

If you have APub too, you don't need to start over. It can be used to edit the AD file directly or via studio link.
