Can text be made to flow around another text box?
« on: October 24, 2019, 09:19:46 pm »
My experimenting shows, "no"

I have a callout with text in it and I need to have text flow around it. I created this callout on a Scribus page, styled the text, then made it a scrap book item for later use. Could that have made this item unflowaroundable?

Thank you!

Is there a way to control how large the "protected area" around the box is?

yes, in the properties palette > Shape > edit the shape's contour line...
