hi kadars

try 'properties' → 'text' → 'columns & text distances'.

Unfortunately, it can't set it.

Welcome to the forum kadars.

utnik's answer is correct for increasing the gap between the text in a frame and the frame it is in.
However, what you want to do is make the text flow around the image frame with a gap between the image frame and the text.
It's a subtle difference but an important one which wasn't evident in your original question.
Just a matter of knowing the right wording to use. It can be confusing at first.

Otherwise you could do a web search for "scribus text flow around frame" (without the quotes) where you will probably see other articles and some videos.

Thank you very much!
I did it. That was the solution.
