Hello all,

If anyone could help that would be amazing please.

I am making a catalogue. However, the description of the catalogue is in a text flowing text box but is growing up not down from the anchor point. When I go on text frame options, it is set on the downward arrow so not sure what else to try. Thank you in advance

Hi @Helen25214903tykj ,

check the alignment of the text in the text frame from the Text Frame Options.

That's different to the control with autogrow. It's under tab General > Vertical Alignment

Could be that vertical alignment is set to bottom.

Hi Uwe Laubender,

Thank you for your reply. However, it is set to top so its not that. I have had a fiddle with all the text frame options and nothing seems to change how the text box grows. 
Thank you,

 

Helen

Hi Helen,

re-read the title of this thread: "Text flow box within another text box"

So the said text frame is anchored to text?

Well, then look into the anchored frame options of the anchored text frame.

Hi @Laubender I don't think that the OP means that it is an anchored frame. I understand that it is a frame which is threaded to another one, but I am not sure.

Hi Helen,

hm. Then post a screenshot of the anchored object settings when you selected the anchored text frame.

Maybe I can see what's going wrong.

 

Thanks,

Hello there,

 

I have attached a word document of settings for both the Text frame and Anchored Object. 

Thank you very much!

The solution lies in the text frame anchored object settings.

Set the anchor point to one of the three anchor points on the top of the 9 anchor points.

Currently it's set to the bottom left anchor point, which is the default.
