I have a issue with wrapping text around a gallery and hope someone can help me out.
This ( Wrapping text around an image in a Adobe Muse ) is the procedure I use to insert
images and it works fluently, but it wont work when its a gallery (the gallery trigger).
It looks the way it supposed to in design mode:
However it looks like the gallery is glued on top
of the text in browser preview:
Are there any solutions to get around this issue?
If you have clicked inside the text to create blinking cursor and copied (in german version there is copy&paste or this scissor icon - ausschneiden) and pasted it into the text it should work fine.
Yes your design view looks quite fine.
If I do it that way it looks in preview like this:
Does this really help?
If not, could you provide a .muse with your two elements? Text and picture?
One page? Via dropbox, CC or similar file sharing.
Hi Uwe, thanks for your reply.
I clicked inside the text box so the cursor start blinking as you describe
and then paste it.
It works fine when it comes to images but not when it`s the gallery.
Did you insert a gallery or a image in your example?
Thanks again for the help.
He knows best if this is even possible to work, or if this is a bug.
Wrapping in HTML (and sometimes in Muse) is very restricted. Even Muse’s built in widgets don’t wrap properly. Try, for example, to place the slide show widget inline. It works nice in design mode, but doesn’t in preview or when exported.
I’d suggest to go without those highly complex constructions. Web design is not print design.
Nevertheless: What works, is a tricky „work around“ constuction:
Place a slide show into a second, empty text container, and place this text container into your existing text container. Now you can specify the wrapping attributes for the pasted text container and – indirectly – for the inline slideshow. This even works – unexpected for me – with a inline slideshow defined as a lightbox. But be aware, that inline objects (images, rectangles) don’t react responsively. And don’t expect, a 3rd party gallery to work in this way!
In some situations you may also try to place an empty rectangle or image frame into your text box and place the gallery icon outside the text box behind it. In certain situations this may work.
Thank you so much Günter Heißenbüttel , and thank you Uwe to get in touch with him and trying to help me out.
It worked. And this is how i did it:
1. Create a main text box (for the text that should wrap around the gallery)
2. Create a new text box outside the main box (try to use the same dimension as the gallery you want to place)
3. Highlight the new text box, right click and cut (text box will dissapear )
4. Click inside the main text box at the place you want to put the gallery (cursor will blink), right click and paste
5. Find your gallery, place it somewhere outside the text boxes and adjust it to desired size
6. Highlight the gallery, right click and cut
7. Highlight the text box were you want to place the gallery, right click and paste (as in step 4)
8. Choose desired wrapping
It`s not perfect when it comes to the size of the gallery compared to the text box its placed in and
it seems to be some space underneath the gallery ( at least in my case), but it should work out.
When trying to place the gallery inside its box (step 2) and then cut and paste those together into the
main box, strange things happens and they split into two boxes...
Thanks again guys!
Best regards, Andreas
