Hi Michael This podcast has nearly saved me so many hours. I work with large documents coming from word. Some of the text that comes to me has to be put in red warning boxes. I have set up to search for the relevent paragraph style and insert a red text object box as your example shows BUT what I want to do is automate the placing of the relevent text into my red warning boxes. Currently What I would have to do is text the text and paste it into the newly inserted warning boxes Any ideas Oli/London

Hi, Michael Episode 45 is just great. Thanks for that. I wonder if it is possible to get the text and pictures to try this on my own. Of course I could use any text or pics but I just love this album story. Many thanks for your podcast. Elle / Denmark

Sadly, the answer is no. Anchored Objects are always in front.

I would like to know if there is a way to anchor object that can go behind the text of a text frame. It seems that anchored object goes always to the front. For example if I have some custom vector shape that I would like to be around the title that is a part of a normal text within the text frame. I would like to be anchored to that title and behind it so I can actually see the text.

Here are some links to other GREP resources: I was also asked if it's possible to actually see the file name during a multi-file Place operation. While this isn't part of the feature itself in InDesign, Anne-Marie Concepcion come up with a clever way to work around this limitation.
