    Default Text wrap in CS

    Greetings,

    While trying to use the text wrap feature in AI CS, I encountered a peculiar problem. It seems that AI will attempt the text wrap, but the end result is a grouping of the text and photo file and not an actual placement of text along the specified border of the photo image.

    I have area type in a rectangle column on a page and I am attempting to place a CMYK Photoshop CS file within the column. I cannot complete the operation within AI.

    Is the problem that AI cannot wrap area type within a container with anything else?

    Is it the grouped 1 pixel border I have around the PSD file to better accept type spacing?

    What causes AI not to wrap text?

    Thanks

    GRF,


    To wrap text around an object:

    1.. Select the object or objects around which you want the text to wrap.
    This is called the wrap object. (See Selecting objects.)
    2.. In the Layers palette, make sure that the wrap object is above the
    text you want to wrap around it. (See Organizing objects using layers.)
    Important: If the layer contains multiple type objects, move any that you
    don't want to wrap around the wrap object either into another layer or above
    the wrap object.

    3.. Choose Object > Text Wrap > Make Text Wrap.
    4.. The Text Wrap Options dialog box appears. If desired, set the
    following options. Then click OK.
    a.. Offset to specify the amount of space between the text and the wrap
    object. You can enter a positive or negative value.
    b.. Invert Wrap to reverse the side of the object that the text wraps
    around.
