Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Wrapping text around a graphic, part of InDesign CS4 Getting Started.
In this exercise I am going to show you how to wrap text around a graphic using…InDesign's Text Wrap panel. I am looking at a document called Dashboard…image.indd found inside the Exercise Files folder and I am currently looking at…the contents of page 1.…Notice that I have gone ahead and zoomed in on this vintage dashboard image…right here, and it's covering up a bunch of text in the background. I want the…text to actually wrap around the graphic, so I will undo that movement by…pressing Ctrl+Z or Command+Z on the Mac.…
Now Text Wrap is something that you apply to the object around which you want…the text to wrap. You don't apply it to the text; you apply it to the graphic.…So I have clicked on the graphic to select it with my Selection tool. …Now I'll go to the Window menu and I'll choose the Text Wrap command, which you…can also get to you by pressing Ctrl+Alt+W or Command+Option+W on the Mac.…I like this panel so much that I am going to drag its tab over here into the…panel column and then I will click on this icon in order to bring up the panel.…

A: To reset the list numbering, follow these steps:
