Description jvromans 2003-12-31 10:37:55 UTC
Draw frames can be placed on arbitrary positions on the page, no matter where
they are anchored to.

When a draw frame is anchored to the header frame (or footer, I assume), and
placed somewhere over the page frame, the text of the page frame does not flow
around it, no matter what "wrap" settings are selected for the draw frame.

The text will wrap according to the settings when the draw frame is anchored to
the page, or to the text frame, but not when anchored to the header frame. This
seriously limits the use of draw frames. Anchoring the draw frames to the header
frame is currently the only way to make them part of the page style.

There will be no loss of functionality when this behaviour is fixed, since the
current behaviour can be obtained by selecting "wrap through" for the draw frames.

I object to the duplicate marking. Although the two issues concern the same
objects (draw frames) the problems are quite different.

In this case it is an error of some sort since the properties tab allows you to
select the wrap type for the draw frame, and then does not honour the selected
type. This is truly a defect. Either disallow wrap type selection, or
(preferred!) fix the wrap behaviour.

The duplicate is the kind of handling with draw frames. 
This means, when the draw frames will be handled like the normal frames, then we
get with the new feature two fixes with one step.
In current it works like it is designed.
