    Because of the disaster that is Quark 7 and what happened in my first and last project using it I have migrated to InDesign. While InDesign is unbelievably easy to pick up if you know your way around Quark there are a few things that are not so clear.

    For instance I am laying out a newspaper and have a text box (8 coloumns) spread across the page. The end column has an advert space/box set to 'wrap around bounding box' so the text in the text box will wrap around the advert. The advert does not reach to the bottom of the text box some text is below the advert just how I want it.

    What I want to do now is ad text to the advert box but I can't because of the wrap around setting.

    In Quark I could set the wraparound on the advert so the bodycopy would flow around the advert. If I wanted to add text to the advert I would just place the advert text infront of the advert. How can I do this in InDesign?

    See InDesign Prefs...

    See InDesign preferences...

    Under the « Composition » menu

    There is the Text wrap pref.

    Click the Text wrap only affects text beneath

    When the advert box is selected, hit Cmd-B. In the bottom left corner is "Ignore Text Wrap."
