I am struggling to find a way to make an anchored frame span more than one
column of a multi-column layout. If I set the frame uncropped, it messes with
the text flow (the text threads to adjacent columns above the figure, which is
not what I want), and if I set it cropped, half of it disappears behind the
adjacent column of text. If I create a paragraph for the anchor that has
'across all columns' set, I get the same effect as setting the frame uncropped.
I suspect it might be something to do with the runaround properties of the
frame, but I seem to remember that this can only be accessed using Dark Magic.
Can anyone suggest a solution? What I want to achieve is for a figure to span
more than one column, but for the text threading to be unaffected by the
presence of the figure.
