[scribus] Wrapping text around picture behind text

Hey a.l.e,

I disagree, because you might want to move the church just a little bit. That would mess up the wrapping, if you change the text frame. Rob's solution definitely is better. Then you just have to move two objects instead of redoing the whole contour line.

Bis dann!

Now the sky on that photo is very light so you can put text on it. The steeple how ever is dark and text wouldn't be visible on it. So you want the text to flow around the steeple, but be on top of the sky. As sky and steeple are the same picture, the text obviously has to be in the level above the picture, because otherwise it is hidden behind the sky. The only way to make the text flow seem like it flows around the steeple is by flowing it around another, invisible object.
