Anchored Objects should be able to be sent to back so text can print above the object
It would be nice if text could print above an anchored object

Yes x 1000! I had a client recently tell me that the font was wrong in one of my documents. It turns out that I had placed a PSD with a clipping path, as an anchored object. So all the text in the text frame was rasterized and looked bold. If I was able to have anchored objects in back, this wouldn't have been a problem.

It is a bit like hanging a swing on a branch before you plant the tree. It could mean that the whole page needs to be loaded before it can be drawn, like it used to be on the old RIPs. What you are asking for is that object stacking should be non sequential. It's a nice Idea from designer perspective but a big ask. :) I'm in if it can be done.

Description in Japanese:
I put a Japanese comments above for Japanese users. Many users have been longing this improvement.
When “sent front/back option” is able to select for Anchored Objects, every InDesign users will be happy all over the world!
Please fix the word wrap for anchored items that must be placed near their text. Also, the alt text for anchored items , when exported to pdf, are reading at the end of the column or page. This is unacceptable for math and engineering.
Please fix this! In STEM pubs we need to be able to place objects in precise spots and have the alt text reflect that. We also need to be able to wrap text and send anchored items to the back. Inline placement, whether above the baseline or not, does not fit the bill.

yes, please. without it, the anchored object is not as useful
Uwe Laubender commented
there are three types of anchored objects:
Inline anchored, above line anchored and anchored.
With Above Line Anchored objects text can be above the anchored object. See my screenshot uploaded to Dropbox:
Of course it would be great if one could do that with the other two types of anchored object as well!
So you have my vote!
