I am using the new aPub release and I love it. I have however run into a frustrating situation with Test Wrap Setting. I have 2 sets of text on a page and an image, I want the first set of text to wrap around the image but not the second set of text. Is there a way to exempt one or more sets of text from having to wrap around the image? If there is I don't know how I missed.

I have attached 2 images below to better illustrate my issue. Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks!

Thank you Paul for your reply. Cropping the image is a possible solution but it is very inefficient for work that needs art directing. What if I receive feedback that says I enlarge the image to cover the full right side of the page? Which by the way I just did!

As you can see, this is not an easy image to key from the background because of the hair so you certainly don't want to crop the image unless you absolutely have to. In this case I chose to duplicate the lower text, sent one copy to the back and converted the top copy to curves. It's a work around but I would rather there Serif implements a way to exempt some text covered by the image from wrapping around the image. Without it, it will create a lot of headache for a lot of designers. In Adobe's world you wrap the text and not the image so this problem never comes up.

I think the Edit Wrap Outline button in the Toolbar does what you want.

Just select the image and move the bottom nodes up


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Works like a charm. I don't believe I missed it. I like you can reset the curve after messing with it.

Thanks!
