Flow text around selection. How?! - Macromedia Fireworks

Hi Zdeto, You can attach text to a path in Fireworks, but it can't be done with blocks of text. Why? Because Fireworks is for creating Web images, which should not contain blocks of text. With only a few exceptions, all text on an HTML page should be HTML text rather than graphic text.

    Hi Zdeto,

    You can attach text to a path in Fireworks, but it can't be done with
    blocks of text. Why? Because Fireworks is for creating Web images, which
    should not contain blocks of text. With only a few exceptions, all text
    on an HTML page should be HTML text rather than graphic text.

However, I've noticed that my textblocks that in Freehand were flowing around some images, are not showing right in Fireworks. I've searched in help, and looked in the text options of Fireworks MX, and I didn't found any feature like this.

    Hi Z:

    Linda is basically right. Large areas of text on your page should be HTML and not images, but in answer to your question, I suggest that you use multiple text blocks in Fireworks and resize them around your object. Fireworks just doesn't have that feature yet. Please feel free to go to:

    to post a feature request.

    Thank you for your replies. I think I'll use some workarounds... :)
