Picture frame pushes text away

Recommended Posts

I have experienced a strange thing sometimes happening with picture frames. The situation: I have text in 2 columns and place a picture frame with a text frame attached (grouped) for image caption. When placing the frames where I want in one column suddenly part of the text in the neighbouring column is pushed to the next page. If I move the grouped frames to the other column, I get the text back to normal. I have text wrapping set to tight for both the picture frame and the text frame but distance from text is set to 0. I attach a APub file of just 2 pages, the picture is now in the left column and everything is correct. If I move the picture over to the right column, part of the text in the left column moves to page 2. Hope somebody will take the time to look into this because it's very annoying.

Uncheck the Balance Text in Columns in the Text Frame panel.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

Also, I think it would be cleaner and possibly perform a bit better if you applied the text wrap to the group, rather than having the group's components (picture frame, caption text frame) with individual text wrap settings.
