Would like to be able to anchor images anywhere and have the text wrap respected
Specific anchor location is important for placements in ePub/HTML exports. However, there are a couple major drawbacks with InDesign's current anchoring abilities.
(1) If an image is supposed to appear after a certain paragraph, but that paragraph ends on the previous spread, you cannot anchor the image to the paragraph it belongs with on the previous spread. (see screenshot: ToPreviousSpread.png). This seems to defeat the purpose of an anchored object. It can't be anchored so will not travel with re-flowing text and it will not Export to ePub/HTML in that specific location.
(2) Images cannot be anchored after their placement and retain their text wrap. See screenshots 01.png, 02.png, and 03.png. The image belongs with the red paragraph and needs to be placed at the top of the right hand page in the print book. It should also appear after the red paragraph in the ePub/HTML. However, if you anchor the image to that location, the preceding (red) text disappears behind the image, thus, negating the image's text wrap. There are workarounds, but it would be nice to be able to do this without modifying/re-sizing the text box.
