Paste a table within a text frame


Recommended Posts

You can create a table outside the text frame, then drag it over the frame, and set the text wrap properties to ensure the text wraps around it. You cannot, however, anchor it to a specific place in the text.

Yes that will help in some instances but generally I'd need it to flow with the text. In a 100 page annual report with lots of tables this would currently be a dealbreaker, I'd have to use InDesign instead (much to my annoyance!).

Hi Michael117,
It isn't a design decision. It simply wasn't implemented yet. Anchored Objects will come in a future update (during the 1.x cycle of the app, after release).

Will this (necessary for me) feature include any and all Objects? Meaning; Are you aware of any caveats or outright exclusions to what we can anchor?

Affinity Designer 1.10.5 | Affinity Photo 1.10.5 | Affinity Publisher 1.10.5 | Beta versions as they appear.

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