Thanks Serif for beta update. Looking even more brilliant.

Can anyone answer another thing I have found though? Is there a way to set Text Wrap Settings so that it only manipulates text lower than itself? At the moment, no matter how low an image or object is in Layers, it still effects any text near it (low and high in layers). I would like to place text I don't want effected by Text Wrap higher than the Text Wrapped object.

Thanks
Andy

I might be wrong, but I think Abfdesign is trying to isolate the text and have only the lower half in the frame wrap around an object/picture but keep the upper half unwrapped. If this is the case, why not just have two text frames linking to each other and have the bottom one be the one that's wrapping?


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!

Bri-Toon - I think you're closest. I just meant I wanted the freedom to make sure that a text box I didn't want to be wrapped, not wrapped! But it seems that any text on that page is wrapped no matter what level it is in the layer. In my Old QX 2015, if a text layer was above something with wrap, it wasn't wrapped. Get me?

It's not a mega problem, but it just didn't give me the flexibility I required.

You can't use a second textframe because the wrapping isn't a text feature but a feature to the transparent part of an object or image.
In XaraDesignerPro the text that is higher in the hierarchy to the wrapping-object is not wrapped only the lower in hierarchy is.
In afPub the hierarchy isn't met so all textframes inside the transparent parts of the object or image gets wrapped

Thanks. No worries. Just thought I'd mention it. I got around it, but it just wasn't as flexible as I would have liked. I'm loving Affinity Publisher no matter what anyone else says.

My observation of the issue was not to comment on anybody
But merely showing how a similar program is handling it
Maybe the devs can benefit from such suggestions.

As I see it, Publisher does not do it the way Indesign and XPress do it.

But thankfully there is this option in the Text Frame palette called "Ignore Text Wraps" which you can activate on this frame you don't want to get wrapped.

Good find,i think this option should be also present on the frame like the eye for hide/show overflow.

woefi  -  Perfect, thanks. This is exactly what I meant. I hadn't seen that bit in Text Frame palette. I shall try looking harder next time. 

Thanks again

This is an essential tool, for instance, for appending captions to photos!

To append a caption to a photo, place the photo, draw a Text Frame under it, supply the text, and in the Layers panel group the photo and the Text Frame.
