Inline images overlap

Hi, I have two inline images that overlap. I would like to see them next to or below each other, so that they "push away" each other by means of circulation or something. HasI can't get it done. Any ideas? These are my settings. Also, is there any way to set images to a maximum of ± 8 cm wide, so that they are automatically resized?

In order for InLine Object to "flow" properly - you need to set Leading to AUTO for the Character it is located in.

 

Then InLine Object is treated as a Character and positioned correctly and will interact with the rest of the Text and other Anchored / InLine Objects.

InDesign does not have a perfect "flow" control system, so that as content is pushed down through the document it perfectly positions itself — or, in most cases, adequately positions itself. You can set elaborate combinations of Object Style and still need to manually repositon anchored graphics for anything but a "high school report" level of layout.

 

But I think you want to look at the Text Wrap pane; setting the wrap on these two images should give you a starting point on better flow. Where and how you anchor image pairs or groups also has a lot of effect on the results.

 

To be honest, working on a document and expecting downstream material to manage itself well, at least between chapter page breaks or the like, is not ID's strength.

Hi @Patrick Bruggink ,

@Robert Tkaczyk is right.

I gave him the "Correct Answer".

 

Also note, that you can change the amount of auto leading, which is 120% by default, in your paragraph or paragraph style settings. This could make sense if you want to move the top of the graphic frame of the next text line to the bottom of the graphic frame in the text line before:

 

AutoLeading 120% vs 100%.PNG

Hi @Patrick Bruggink ,

the value for auto leading can be found in the Paragraph panel and in the Paragraph Styles. From my German InDesign 2023 on macOS:

I think you'll find this in the "Justification" tab of a paragraph style as well. I'm not sure about the translation, because "Satz-Feineinstellungen" in my German InDesign is by far not a direct translation from "Justification". In German you can read that as "fine tuning of typesetting".

It doesn't work. I have here the file in question. On pages 11 and 13, for example, you see multiple frames superimposed.

Hi @Robert Tkaczyk ,

I'm not sure if the help files are very accurate on the leading page.

 

I wonder what that could mean:

 

Note:

The Auto option in the Leading pop‑up menu of the Control panel menu sets Auto Leading value in the Justification dialog box as a ratio (%) of character size. The default is 175% for text frames and 100% for frame grids.

 

Why 175% ?

Why for text frames ?

Hi Patrick,

this requires a much deeper look than I just did in your attached InDesign document.

 

Just glanced over some settings for the anchored images.

I do think that you are using the option "Above Line" instead of "Inline".

Changing the applied object style could be an option, but there are more issues to it.

 

Currently I have no time for the "deep dive".

One thing to add:

If a graphic frame needs the overall width of the text frame it is anchored to, anchor the frame to its own paragraph that you can control with an applied paragraph style.
