Wrapping paragraph text around objects and text

You can change the shape of text by wrapping paragraph text around an object, artistic text, or a paragraph text frame. You can wrap text using contour or square wrapping styles. The contour wrapping styles follow the curve of the object. The square wrapping styles follow the bounding box of the object. You can also adjust the amount of space between paragraph text and the object or text, as well as remove any wrapping style you apply.
