Hi David,

I'm not sure that I understand the exact effect that you're trying to achieve, but, you might consider creating a dummy object (just an empty picture frame) and using that for your text wrap.  This might meet the requirements that you specify.

I'm not sure if there is another (smarter) way to do it, but this is something that I do in Illustrator and Inkscape all of the time.  (And yes, I know there are probably smarter ways to do it there, as well.)

That is useful if you e.g. have light shades of grey in an image image that you want the text to be on top of (e.g. a slight shadow), but also a object that you want it to flow around. Whenever I put the Text in front of an image (regardless of it having wrapping set or not) it doesn't wrap.
