Sometimes you will want to set text frames to wrap around each
other. Below is a back panel design for freeburnguide's
Since there are only two artists on this CD, we really don't
need the artist listed for every track. This is where text
frame wrapping can come in handy. The first 15 tracks are by
NOFX, while the last 7 are by SNFU. We'd like to insert the
artist names in the flow of the track listing.
To do this, you'll want to create two text frames. Use
the text frame tool and type in the artist's names:
Now we've got two text frames, one for NOFX and one for
SNFU. We are going to want to place the NOFX frame at the top
of the list, and then insert the SNFU text frame in the middle of the
list. We want the tracks above and below the SNFU text frame to
wrap to separate lines. Double-click on the SNFU text frame,
and select the 'Properties' tab. Set the 'Wrap' pulldown to "Line":
The "Line" option forces other objects to wrap to
the next line. If we had chosen, "Text", the tracks
would wrap to the right side of our frame.
Now we can drag the frames into position and adjust their
color and font style (remember the ctrl-click to select objects
inside or behind other objects....):
For fine adjustments we'll want to adjust the wrap
margins. The easiest way to do this is to click and drag
them. Before we do this, however, we'll have to turn on the
feature to, "show wrap margins". Go to
Tools>Program Options. Check the checkbox for "Show
text wrap margins on objects", and click OK:
Now we can click and drag the wrap margins to suit our needs.
Select the text frame, and hover the cursor over the outer text frame
border. It will change to a dark gray double-tipped arrow.
Clicking and dragging this border will set the wrap margins for the frame:
After a little fine tuning we are done!
