Part of the pull quote should cover the image.

First I did got the option to bring it to front, but when I clicked it it did not come to the front and after the option to bring it to front is gone.

All objects on the spread are in the same layer, in my "Content" layer.

This spread is one of my master pages.

I have also a Master layer (remain of the template that I started out from), but that is empty because I deleted all its content.

Instead of filling the frame with [Paper] use paragraph formatting like Paragraph Shading.

When I activated ignore text wrap in the text frame options (the pull quote frame), the text finally appeared on the top of the image.

But not the offset.

The frame has no background.

I thought the offset would cut out the image but it doesn't.

I guess I need a background color (white).

Is that a must?

After setting white (paper) background, the background of the pull quote is still shown without the offset.

Finally the question remains:

How do I give the text wrap offset a color, especially when it's overlapping an image, like this:

The bottom shading offset need to be a bit bigger than the top to get it aligned:
