Default How to adjust the padding on an Image with Text Wrap?

Hello Again,

I am setting up some presentation fliers for a client, and one section requires presenter/speaker head shots and biographies. The client has designed them to wrap the text around the speaker's photo and to have 0.1875" of padding on just the right side and bottom of the image. Fusion Pro is wrapping the text around the image, but the text touches the image box.

It took me a while to even find the text wrap setting at all, and I can find no place to change the behavior of the text wrap in my Fusion Pro documentation. Is there a way to define the precise padding (space around the image) when using the text wrap tool?

I have included a mock up image of what I am attempting to do and what Fusion Pro is generating:


I know for a fact that the client will not redesign this layout to accommodate the software, so I have to figure out a way to create the desired layout.

Thanks!

DWilliams,
There are 2 ways this can be addressed:
1) Use Text inset on the Text frame, although with this option the inset value is symmetrical, so it will also inset on the right edge of the frame as well.

2) Add another frame which is empty. Then set it to the edge of where the text is to be "padded", but that frame is only used for that padded space of the text frame.

Hope this helps

You can see an example of this in the Frodo Travel tutorial job.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Thank you both very much for answering my question.
This seems like an opportunity for a use case request to update VDP with a handy feature…
