  • Backgrounds behind text wrap

    I am working in Indesign and have created text wrapped around an object. Now I want to have a solid background behind all this. Problem is since I have text wrap enabled on the object it also is wrapping text around the rectangle I've created for the background.

    I feel like I am missing something obvious.

    Any ideas?

    Click the background object, and make sure that in the text wrap wrap, wrapping is turned off. Text should not wrap around any other object besides what has been specified so.
    hope that helps!

        Thanks. Worked like a charm. I knew it was a stupid question but I'm glad I saved a few hours of frustration by asking.

          You can't draw conclusions that way. All the Adobe apps make hard numerical evidence available so you can execute and evaluate such things methodically and without guesswork. Select the image on the InDesign...

          Hi there! I've been attending OCAD for two years now after attending another college. I'm told it's a much different atmosphere than colleges because it's less focused on "application" and more...

          Hi again,
          For some reason, the jpg that is 1920 px by 680 px does not fit into the Adobe InDesign 1920px by 680px document. When I place the jpg into INDesign it shows up much smaller. I know this...
