SUMMARY

In most cases the Publisher for Windows automatic text-wrap feature will prevent text from overlapping. It is possible to create the effect of overlapped or superimposed text; however, to do so, the text must be in separate text frames.

Place one text frame on the background page and one on the foreground page. Format the foreground text frame as transparent and line it up as desired over the text frame in the background. This will avoid Publisher's automatic text-wrap feature.

NOTE: Whatever is on the background page will appear on every page unless you choose Ignore Background from the Page menu on the pages where you do not want those elements to appear. Also, everything (not just select items) on the background page will be ignored on that page.
