Hello, I start using Publisher Beta, but when I try to handle the "text wrapping" it doesn't really work. If I change the distance from the text on the left, the text on the right moves. If I do it on the right it seems as also the text on the right moves. Is this issue known? Thanks!

Belongs in here I think. Text is aligned right. Text wrapping only works if the margin from text is 3 mm for both left AND right. Irrelevant if wrapping is set to both sides oder biggest side.

Yes - I'm seeing the exact same BIZARRE behaviour. It's damn near impossible to get it to work properly - I change the right offset and the left moves. Or doesn't move at all. Or they all move - whether the lock is set or not. The lock doesn't work - half the time it does the opposite of what is expected. Of course, sometimes, just to make things interesting, it decides to actually do what you want.

This is MUST FIX item - I simply can't make it behave. :58_disappointed_relieved: I've been tearing my hair out thinking *I* was doing something wrong, but nope - it's something very wrong in afpub. FYI, in case it's OS-specific: I'm using a Mac running High Sierra.

I'm adding some screen shots to illustrate the issues. The first one - you'd think, wouldn't you, that you'd have a nice 1/4" offset to the left and top of that photo, no? And note the caption text box on the bottom - see where the text is? For unknown reasons, there is an offset on the bottom, where there isn't supposed to be any. And then there is the second screen shot - the ONLY way I could get any left offset was to add some on the right. And yet, on another photo on a different page, with all the same settings as the first one here, the wrap does work.

And btw - changing the "both sides" to "largest side" and back again did nothing at all. It still wasn't working as it should be.

I am getting this problem in the newly released version. I cannot get text wrap to work at all. I tried inserting an image and nothing and I tried it with a picture frame and no wrap. I have set all the options like the poster above. Is there a solution?

There is a check box in the Text Frame Studio which sets Ignore Text Wrap.

Found it and it works. Wonder why the default for the Text Box is Ignore Text Wrap. I was looking at the image properties.

Thank you.

It isn't, for me.

It was the default on my MAC version.  If you go to the Text Frame Panel and uncheck IgnoreText Wrap and then change the default setting, each new document will open without the option checked and text wrap will work correctly.
