I believe you need to set the runaround properties of the graphic to None.

I'm having an issue with text frames on a graphic. I need to place some text frames to use as part labels on a graphic. I've created some text frames and entered in the text I need for some of the callouts. I've then tried to move them into place on the graphic (which is inside an anchored frame). I can place some of them and they show up and I can also select them and relocate/resize them as needed. However, some of the text frames don't allow this. Indeed, they end up showing the text being below the bottom margin of the text frame. I can't Control-click on the frame to select it and I can't resize it without moving the underlying graphic. I've tried sending the graphic to back, bringing the text frames to front, but it doesn't make any difference. I've also tried looking in the manual and saw something about selecting a different color view, but it's really unclear exactly what to do there. I've tried a couple of things with the color views and they haven't made a difference. Can someone please tell me what's happening here? Sometimes, I can place a text frame on top of a graphic and have it display just fine and others I get the same effect here: the text frame indicating the text is outside of the frame's margins. Sometimes, if I nudge the graphic one way or another, the text reappears in the text frame. However, that's usually if the text frame is near the edge of the graphic. In this case, I need the text frame over the middle of the graphic. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance, Samuel I.
