How to place an image inline with the text using InDesign CS4?

I'm writing the first draft of an instruction manual how two for some software.

I'm writing the manual directly in InDesign CS4 and making screen shots that I'm making progress. I format the screenshot in Photoshop and export it to a JPG file.

In InDesign, I double-click in the text box where I want to insert the image, go to file > place, get the picture, then press on open.

Usually InDesign inserts the image at the cursor flashing in the text, but sometimes what happens is that no picture inserted and everything after it disappears. I get several empty text boxes and need to Control-Z to get back to where I started.

Now I can put the image outside the text box and then manually move it to the text where I want to go, however when I export the file as HTML, then I need to manually move it to the appropriate area in Dreamweaver (when the image is placed inside the text box to the flashing cursor, the HTML file shows the image in the right place).

I was able to insert the line in file with the text to a new paragraph mark, but sometimes InDesign doesn't let me do. Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't.

I don't know what I'm doing to prevent it from placing the paragraph mark and the blinking cursor (which is where I want it to appear).

This is a recording of screen 54sec of my actions:

Steps to follow:

I double-click inside the text box

I place the image

everything goes

I have a few pages scroll, and then return to the starting point

I have to scroll through a page or double-click inside the text box then press return a few times, and the previous image, I put in this way is automatically pushed to the next page.

I go back to point of original departure, try again, and it does not work.

I've done it before, but now it does not work. I don't know what's happened prevents him from online to the location of the cursor.

Help, please.

Thank you

It seems to me that the image is too wide for the frame. You can place it on the editing table, scale in the size, then cut to the Clipboard and paste it into the flow of the text.

  • Can we do "image moves with the text" the default behavior when you paste an image into a page of text?

    in a text in 'pages' document - copy - paste an image in a body of text automatically seems to do with 'image remains on the page' and 'automatic', which makes the image stays in place when later editing / adding text... so the picture does not end with the original text that belongs to it.

    Can we do the setting "Fix '-' with text Move' -' Inline with the text" setting by default, then it will automatically stick a new image without having to go through a few clicks every time?

    Thanks muchly, everyone who might have an idea


    You can insert and to scale an image of your choice, set its object Placement and dressing of your choice and then do a placeholder image. You save then this as a model. When you create a new document based on this template, any image that you copy/paste or drag/drop on this placeholder image will now have your preferences of positioning of the object and the skin. Other that that, you cannot change the default settings of v5.6.1 Pages.

  • How can we have a column with the text and radio button in the same row?


    I have a column that need to have data with a radio button. Has been able to achieve this by using < trh:tableLayout >. But when I select the option button it moves to the next line. You want to stop this behavior of option button to move to the next line. This column also includes a hyperlink. If the text and the hyperlink are made invisible visible based on the action of the radio button.
    Adding one more doubt. A horizontalgrid of specific columns can make invisible?
    Any help would be appreciated.

    example code:
    < trh:cellFormat id = "cf8" halign = 'Start' >
    < af:activeOutputText value = "#{rank." Actions}"id ="aot2"/ >
    < af:goLink text = ' #{rank. " Actions}"id ="gl1 ".
    clientComponent = "true" visible = "false".
    targetFrame = "_blank" destination = "http:// + #{rank." BUTTON_URL} ">"
    < / af:goLink >

  • How to organize a table like 'move with the text' and 'around and underneath "? For now, my only option in the menu drop-down is "in line with text.

    Hello. I am trying to format a table, so that when I hit it, it moves to the bottom of the page and the bumps any text underneath down as well (that is if you can see the whole table and all text at any time)


    However, the only options I seem to have are moving with the text > inline with the text. The first part is what I want, but having the means of inline with the text of table than all text below it floats UNDER the table, and you can't read it.

    PIC 1 - My only option when "move with the text" is selected. As you can see all the other features are also grayed out.

    Photo 2 - I want now, select above and below, but when I select something other that in line with the text...

    PIC 3... it jumps to stay on the Page option is not what I want.

    Any ideas?

    You can have a floating table in v4.3 Pages ' 09 that moves before the text typed before it, but this feature has not been added to any release of v5 Pages. Simply set the table in the Wrap Pages ' 09 Inline with the text Inspector, and object causes the film if you wish.

  • Table: "move with the text -" option restores the "stay on the page.

    I'm under Pages 5.6.1 on MacBook Pro (15-inch, mid-2015, retina, 10.11.3).) 2.8 i7 1 TB flash, 16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, GHz Intel Core.

    The question that I will have (and frankly, have frequently), it is that when I have a table or an image embedded in a Pages document, I have problems affecting this table or an image to "move with the text" Format--> arranges--> object--> move with text placement, inevitably the option 'dressing' going on to "in line with text." But I don't want "inline with the text" option is selected, I want the text to wrap around the image. After scouring the other threads, I found the idea that it has to do with the provision of two-sided objects, and that the image or table should be sent to the front to make it possible. However, these options are completely grayed out during this effort together.

    Anything you can do to help would be appreciated, Internet.

  • Can I create a slide show of slider/image carousel with the possibility for the links and the widths of the image to an Adobe program variable and then place in Muse


    I really hope someone can help me with a project that led to drive me to despair.

    I'll put up an online art gallery, last year, I used Wix to create a site ( Initially, I thought it was a good idea that I could build the mobile site with the site of the office. It turns out that features model are appalling and every time I add a new page I have to reinstall everything on the mobile site.

    In the last month, I've searched Adobe Muse. I started to build the site map and added to the artist page, but there are pages on the current site which have a slider carousel with the possibility for widths of the variable image and links that I cannot emmualte in Muse -! Asia/cfvg

    Is there an Adobe program that I can use to create a cursor image carousel with the ability to tie and use images with varying widths which is compatible with Adobe Muse?

    As a button? Seriously?

    Ok. First of all, because the image already contains text, there no point in including the same wording in the form of text on the button. Accessibility requirements can be met using re-sign as alternative text. 4.2, create an image button:

    Tag/Alt text: Re-sign

    Static ID: re - sign

    Style button: Image

    Button Image: & WORKSPACE_IMAGES.resign.jpeg

    To make the image looks more like a button, add the following CSS to Inline CSS property page:

    #re-sign img {
      margin: 0 2px 2px 0;
      border: 2px outset;
      border-radius: 4px;
    #re-sign img:active {
      margin: 2px 0 0 2px;
      border: 2px inset;
      border-radius: 4px;

    Finally, there is a bug in 4.2 that generates the incorrect URL for the button images, which requires dynamic action of Page Load to fix.

    Event: Loading the page

    Action: Run the JavaScript Code


    var resignImg = $("#re-sign img");
    resignImg.attr("src", resignImg.attr("src").replace("/i/", ""));

    OK, Bob. This give a try.

    First, open a new file and make sure the background is white, not on Transparent that I suspect you have currently defined.

    Then, type your copy. Your layers panel will then look like the top of this picture...:

    and when you drag the text on the image layer, it will look like the lower part of the sample above.

    You can then position the text layer with the tool move

  • images don't "move with the text" correctly when I have several columns

    I use 2 columns, have been inserting images in my text and chose 'move with the text' but when I have to go back and fix something, or add text over the images all move and do not stay with the text.  They start on their knees and move to the other columns and will not stay with the text.  In my view, this has to do with the use of columns, does anyone have any suggestions?

  • The image quality with the Canon 5Dmark 2 vs... The 5Dmark3?

    I use Leica lenses on a canon with an adapter body.  Is the image quality with the Canon 5Dmark 2 vs.the 5Dmark3 similar?  A reason to get one against the other?  I like the idea that I can change the viewfinder on the Mk 2 screens. Any overwhelming improvement in the 5Dmark 3 that would justify the review?  Thanks to those who have used the two boxes.

    The main advantage of a Mk3 on the Mk2 is the AF.  Most points and it can focus with f/8.   If your Leica lens is manual focus, then you would not care to this topic.  3 5 has a bit of an advantage in the ISO but not a huge factor.  Another one, I'd say that IQ is the same.
