WebYep image with text wrap

I’ve tried to find an answer to this anywhere - maybe someone knows? Max?

How can I have a WebYep text item, long or short, start at the top right of a WebYep image which is flush left in my text box? Currently the text aligns at the bottom right edge of the image. I’m thinking there is some html I can add in the html area for the image, but I am completely lost when it comes to that.

Thanks for any help.

Actually, once I looked at it after uploading it did what I wanted, except I can’t seem to apply a margin around the image. Hmmmmmm, any hints for that? The html I am using for the WebYep image is: align=“left” hspace=“20”

Again, I know just enough code to be dangerous.

Thx, L

You will have to nest html boxes to get you image margin. In other words put your image inside an html box and give the html box the “padding” you require for the image margin.

Or give the image box the ‘margin’ you require for the image margin?

And be sure to turn off the height and width for the image HTML box or strange things will happen.

Good call Chuck. I’ll give it a go.

And Paul - Freeway won’t let you give the WebYep image box margins - at least the option does not appear.

Thanks!

Well now, nesting boxes didn’t work. It just wouldn’t let me add the image once logged in. Weird. The editable item showed up, but I couldn’t select it.

And Robin - I don’t see how I can “turn off” the height and width for the image HTML box - in the inspector?

You sure you “inserted” the action item in the html box as opposed to drawing it out? Inserting means to click inside the html box till you get the flashing cursor, then adding the action item from the menu.

Oh, OK :slight_smile: I know nothing about WebYep so maybe there’s something
stopping it. Although isn’t the WebYep image box just an ordinary
image box?

Hi Laura
if you want webyep text to wrap around a webyep image
this is what you need to do:

draw an html box then
click inside it and insert a webyep short or lingtext box
then while the cursor is flashing insert a webyep image
now look at the webyep image action palette and where it say enable optional HTML attributes
click the checkbox now in the field you need to type this in

style="margin:5px; float:left; clear:left; "

now what will happen is if an image is uploaded the webyep image will use these styles
so if you wanted an image to be on the right you would change the above to

style="float:right; clear:right; margin:5px; "

to add a grey border you could write this:

style="float:right; clear:right; margin:5px; border:1px solid #777777;"

if you added padding to this you would now get space between the image and the border as wel as space between the border and the text that flows around it

style="float:right; clear:right; margin:5px; border:1px solid #777777 padding:5px;"

these styles are only activated if you upload an image so any borders or margins you use will not bee seen until that webyep image is filled

ps if you are going to write a big style then its easier to do it in something like text edit and then copy and paste it into that field.

ps2 I am in the middle of adding this sort of function within the interface but it wont be ready until early next year, … to much testing, manual writing and christmas pudding to eat and digest… :o) to make it any sooner

hope this helps
but if you have any problems let me know

and another mistake the last example I missed a semi colon after the hex colour
so it should be this:

style="float:right; clear:right; margin:5px; border:1px solid #777777; padding:5px;"

Hey Max! I knew you’d come through for me. It worked great. You’re awesome.

Careful you don’t eat too much of that Christmas pudding - fa la la!
