Summary0016106: Unable to place text wrapped text box above a grouped box
DescriptionCreate two text frame
Add content to both of them.
Let one text frame has less content.
The other one has good amount of text. It spans two columns.
Group the two text frames
Now create another text frame
Add content to this one. Let this text frame holds less amount of text content
Now press F2
Goto shapes
Select Text flow around countour line as Text Flow value
Click "Edit.." under "Shape:"
Select each point highlighted in text frame and note down the X and Y positions
Click on Edit Contour Line
Now subtract 0.1411 (or any suh value) from Top Left X and Y position
Add 0.1411 (or any suh value) to top right X and subtract from Top Right Y position
Add 0.1411 (or any suh value) to bottom left Y and subtract from bottom left X position
Add 0.1411 (or any suh value) to bottom right X and Y position
This will bring the Contour Line outside of the text box
Now click OK and close the properties widow
Raise the level of the text frame to Top
Now place the text frame over the text frame with larger content in the grouped text frame.
Nothing happens
Ungroup the grouped frame and place the text box over the text frame with larger content
Now it works.

In Indesign this will work also over a grouped text frame.

Any thought in having the same feature in Scribus
