Pages Shape and Image Placement and Wrapping

When you add a shape or image to a Pages word processing document the object will be anchored to the text, which will wrap around it. You can change the object's settings so it stays on the page or is inline with text. You can also change how text wraps around the object.

    Once again, I learn I've been using about 75% of the functionality of this feature. Thanks for kicking it up a notch!

    I often need to change the text wrap to None. Is there a way of making this the default, instead of Automatic?

    Colin: No. But you can always copy and paste (or Option+drag) to duplicate an existing element that has text wrap set to none. You can even store samples in another document to copy and paste. See https://macmost.com/mac-pages-tricks-for-reusing-image-settings.html

    Wish I'd received this email yesterday - would have had a few more hours sleep last night. Thank you very helpful. Can these features be used within a table?

    Carmel: No, in a table the image would just be "in" a cell, so there's no wrapping or anything involved.

    I learned a great many things from your excellent tutorial. One item you did not mention in the ARRANGE tab is that little spin box labeled "Alpha." Can you please explain the function of that box. Thanks!

    3 weeks ago

    Lucas: That will attempt to use the alpha channel (or background removal) to wrap the text around the shape of the image, if there is one.
