Text Frame Pinning Wrap Style Bug

Recommended Posts

I love the fact that Pinning is now part of Publisher but there is a possible bug with Wrapping.

I'm new to Publisher so sorry if I'm just doing it wrong.

I added two small 3 column text blocks over two full-page text blocks.

The full-page blocks are full of text. The 3 column blocks have their Wrap Style set to Jump and they are linked.

Wrap seems to work with pinning set to Float but is ignored when pinning is set to Inline.

Is it me or is it a bug?

Intentional. Items pinned inline are treated just as if they are a character in that line. Characters in a line don't have wrap settings, and neither do other objects that are considered "characters" due to being pinned inline.

As Dave Harris said here,

Quote

Because inline images behave like characters, you don't get much control over how they are positioned. You can't move them from side to side with the mouse, because they have to stay between the characters to their left and right. You can change their size, and move them up or down. When the images are larger than the paragraph leading, doing that has a similar effect to changing the height of a very tall character. The leading increases or decreases to accommodate it. 

Also, this response from Dave:
