       If I'm understanding correctly, you're attempting to write something
with pictures interspersed throughout.

       If that's the case, then here's my system:
           use Writer for your document, then return to the spots where the
images should be and insert.

       If that's not the case, I haven't a clue,
           yet I sure will be hoping that someone else on this list will
respond to you,
              because I would like to know if there's a simpler way to
handle words wrapping around text.

Subject: [libreoffice-users] Fit Text to Contour

I'm trying to use Draw to make up some text to put around pictures in

The help says:
        "Adjust to contour - Adapts the text flow so that it matches the
contours of
the selected drawing

For the life of me I can't figure how to connect the text to a shape. I have
a text box with text in it and a curve that I drew, but to get the text to
follow that curve seems beyond me. I've selected the shape and gone to the
menu Format/Text and selected adjust to contour as it says to do, but

Then I selected both at the same time and still nothing. When I double click
the line and start typing the text writes on a horizontal line and covers
line where it intersects it.

This also in Help: To enter text on a line, double-click the line and type
paste your text. The text direction corresponds to the direction you dragged
to draw the line. To hide the line, select Invisible in the Line Style box
the Drawing Object Properties bar.

Can't make that work either.

It seems as it I am blind or some key is missing in the help. Any help will
be greatly appreciated.
