Wrap Text in Adobe Illustrator CC
Wrapping text in Adobe Illustrator CC isn’t quite the same as wrapping a present — it’s easier! A text wrap forces text to wrap around a graphic, as shown in this figure. This feature can add a bit of creativity to any piece.
First, create a text area and either enter text or paste text into it. Then place an image that you can wrap the text around. Follow these steps to wrap text around another object or group of objects:
Select the wrap object.
This object is the one you want the text to wrap around.
Make sure that the wrap object is on top of the text you want to wrap around it by choosing Object→Arrange→Bring to Front.
If you’re working in layers, make sure that the wrap object is on the top layer.
Choose Object→Text Wrap→Make.
An outline of the wrap area is visible.
Adjust the wrap area by choosing Object→Text Wrap→Text Wrap Options.
The Text Wrap Options dialog box appears, as shown in this figure.
You have these options: Offset specifies the amount of space between the text and the wrap object. You can enter a positive or negative value. Invert Wrap wraps the text on the inside of the wrap object instead of around it.Adjust the distance of the text wrap from the object.
When you finish making selections, click OK.
If you want to change the text wrap at a later point, select the object and choose Object→Text Wrap→Text Wrap Options. Make your changes and click OK.
If you want to unwrap text from an object, select the wrap object and choose Object→Text Wrap→Release.
