Join Michael Murphy for an in-depth discussion in this video Anchoring objects into a text flow, part of InDesign CS6: HTML.
In the last movie, we started ordering the content in this layout using InDesign's…Articles panel to get the order of content we want in our exported HTML.…And we ran into the problem that the main body…for this article is a continuous, uninterrupted flow of text.…And if I want to add something like this pull quote…or this group of images here on the pasteboard within the copy,…I can't just add them after the main flow of content in the articles panel because…they'll show up At the end of the story, and that's not really where I want them.…
What I need to do is to work these items into my flow of text.…And the only way to do that is to anchor the…objects within the body copy wherever I want them to appear.…So let's start with this pull quote.…Right now the pull quote is resting above my body copy…frame, and its text wrap is pushing away the text.…And let's say I wanted this pull quote to actually appear in line with…this paragraph on my webpage, and have the paragraph wrap around the pull quote.…
My CSS will handle the formatting, but that's the location I want it to be in.…
