I am in process of transferring  a publication from PagePlus to Publisher.

In doing so I grouped a picture together with a text box below in PagePlus.
Copied it (CTRL C)
Pasted it on top of a Pub Text frame.
It came out large and horizontally distorted
I made it smaller and gave it a text wrap.
I adjusted the stand off and found this peculiar extra gap below the text in the imported text box.
Is this normal please?

Can you provide your .afpub file, or a subset of it that shows the problem?

Off-hand it appears that the wrap outline extends below the name ("Kenneth") significantly, and blocks the words on the two lines below that image. Note that the "Frank" image shows a similar problem, but to a smaller degree.

Sorry it's a bit large.

The attachment seems to be corrupted.  Perhaps it's too big, or perhaps it just didn't upload properly.

But, yes, with the image and caption grouped, the wrap has to be around both of them. And depending on the attributes of the caption text maybe the outline is larger than you're expecting.

If the file is too big to upload perhaps you could cut out more, and do a Save As to get it significantly smaller? Or, you might use the Edit Wrap Outline button to get a better idea of what the wrap looks like; that might give you more ideas.
