Text Wrap not working on linked text frame

Recommended Posts

With a very simple layout featuring two text frames linked together on opposing pages, an object defined with text wrap has no effect on the second (linked) text frame. Moving the object across to the first text frame and the wrapping works fine.

  • Changing the style of text wrap or its parameters have no effect.
  • Deleting column/page break makes no difference

Obvious word-around is to use a non-linked page, but this will present many problems in a long document. Currently using v1.8.3.641.

Any help much appreciated.

The Text Frame studio panel has an option to "Ignore Text Wraps". Perhaps you have that set for the second frame?

Thanks Walt, I think that was the answer. After I created a second (unlinked) text frame and then linked it to the first frame it worked correctly. The odd thing is why it chose to 'Ignore' in the first place: I would have assumed the opposite should be the default. Never mind - lesson learned! :)
