Follow a line or a block

Hello
I have a circular image block ; I wish that a text should follow the circular outline of this block... Is it possible a little like in adobe illustrator
Thanks for your links and explanations...

Hi ndubau,

With "follow" you mean that you have the box outside the text on the margin and it should always be at the same height as the text beside it? That's possible using Callouts.

Or do you mean that text should wrap around the shape? That's possible by converting a box into a bezier curve.

Thanks
Matthias

I'm not quite sure what you want to do, but if the problem is with text wrapping around the circular image box, then you have to follow these steps:

1. Make sure that the image box is placed over the text box.
2. Go to Runaround tab in the Measurement palette and set "Item" for the image box.
3. You can also set a value (in points) for how distant has the text to be placed around the image box.

Please see the attached image.
