Hi,

I have tried several ways of floating text around and image but are unable to. Either the text is floating over the image such as layers or the text and image ends up side by side as in columns. Here is an example how it should flow:

xxxxxccccccccccccc

xxxxxccccccccccccc

xxxxxccccccccccccc

cccccccccccccccccc

cccccccccccccccccc

cccccccccccccccccc

cccccccccccccccccc

Any ideas?

One solution is to use two text fields. Add a text field adjacent to the image, and a second text field below the image and adjacent text field. Of course text will not flow automatically from one text field to the next, so a sentence or paragraph break might be wise between the two text fields.

Ok, so jasper does not support this functionality to flow text around objects. Do you know if this is going to be supported in near future?
