Anchor Objects Text Wrap
Have anchor objects wrap around first line of text. This is particularly helpful when a graphic/photo is in a table or an text box.
It's not clear how text wrap on an anchored image is at all functional if it ignores the first line of text where the anchor is placed. Place an image next to a paragraph of text to which it relates, and the first line runs over the image. There appears to be no way in Indesign that gets around this, bar placing static images and then have to constantly be moving them with the text. Inserting a dummy paragraph above so the first line is no longer the first line creates its own problems. This situation might be ok if your work is an A4 flyer, but it makes Indesign not fit for purpose if you create books.

This is a critical problem for those making accessible PDFs from InDesign layouts. Especially in STEM and technical documents, the graphic must be anchored at a precise spot in the layout (and the resulting PDF tag tree). This bug prevents us from either creating the design and accessibility we need, or spending costly labor to correct the PDF in Acrobat.
It's been 20 years, Adobe. Fix this *&^%$#@! bug.
I'm evaluating publishing tools and this bug will probably move me to purchase Flare licenses even though we already have ID. There's no way I'd move to Framemaker given Adobe's product neglect and desperate marketing over the last five years. Hey Adobe—fix your bugs and have your products stand for something.
