Good Afternoon All,

I have a 3-layer InDesign document: Top = text, 2nd = photos, 3rd = background transparency images @ 10 percent.

PROBLEM: I just used "Ignore Text Wrap" to successfully place text in front of background images. When I add a photo to the layout I can't get the text to wrap around it - it's either right up against the image or totally in back or in front of the image.

What am I missing here?? What's the fix??

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

James D'Ambrosio

Ignore Text Wrap is a way to get, for example, a caption to snug close to a picture that has textwrap applied to it. 

Is it possible that you have text wrap turned on at default and so it is applied to every new frame you make? If that is the problem, then deselect all objects, and set the Text Wrap panel to none (the first button).

Thanks, Mike! Much appreciated. I'm new to the Layering/Stacking Order process and this is a big help.
