Opening Text Wrap panel crashes application
- Indesign 2021
- Place image, open text wrap panel, does not open panel and crashes.
Happens with any image and any document. Panel opens fine if pic box empty.
Gone back to 2020.
The fix for this issue is now available in the latest update of InDesign – version 16.1
Please update to this version to get the fix.

Any news on this? I have the same problem - the blue dot only appears on the Wrap around object shape option (I want to wrap to alpha channel) - when I select it I get a prompt to select object and then InDesign crashes. Running version 16.1 on Windows - UPDATE: just checked same on mac and there's still a blue dot but InDesign doesn't crash...

Issue is still happening today. I have the most recent version of Indesign 2021. It has crashed twice in a row, now, when I go to click on the Text Wrap panel.

Please help, I can't change or correct the styles because when I apply them, all the text disappears!
When I place text it appears blank! and when I type in a text box suddenly all the text disappears!
Bug is still here, not fixed. I don't crash, but it cannot be removed.
Everytime I click on "text wrap around object" (that has a blue dot on it), my ID 16.0.2 (up to date) crashes.
Working in InDesign 2021...Same problem. When making a text box and trying to type in it...cant see the text, although I know its there because there is a layer with the text showing in the actual layer. The blue dot is in the text wrap but for some reason cannot be removed. It sees a text wrap when there is none. I restarted with preferences off and that still did not fix the problem. Under Object Styles, all are off. Reopened the doc with InDesign 2020 which converted it from 2021 to 2020 and now no problem.
When i want to edit any text block in an existing file my Indesign crashes. Latest update...

can you please remove this comment as being the answer/fixed as it is not fixed and still occurring even after the update.

"WRAP AROUND OBJECT SHAPE" has a blue dot on it and everytime you click on it INDESIGN 2021 crashes. What's the solution? we can't seem to use text wrap around an object in the layouts. My OS is MOJAVE 10.14.3.
Still crashing, 16.0.1. I did some testing and i think it has to do with the nature of the object being wraped, seems to work fine on shapes but crashes on placed images, or more complex shapes.
The issue seems to have something to do with Mojave. We had this exact issue, then updated to Big Sur and no longer have this problem. Don't know if upgrading the OS is an option for you, but it worked for us.
I was the original poster - it's not completely fixed. Panel now opens ok but the "wrap around object shape” still crashes.
Icon also has a “blue dot” on it sometimes - never seen this before, what does it mean?

No, it isn't fixed. I just had 16.0.0 crash for this reason, was directed to this page, updated to 16.0.1, and it crashed again.
This still seems to be an issue. Having the problem on a mac mini 2018, running Mojave
Repeating crashes by adjusting table and/or image in a cell after a certain time. Seems to be a storage issue. Only a system restart helps for al little while (catalina). Struggling with images/objects in tables is a known issue throughout several versions of InDesign. It's highly time to solved it finally! I'm not your beta-tester!

Now the panel brings up. But, when the "AI" subject wrap is selected, crash again. Tested three times.
same problem here - when is the fix update being released?
Same exact problem as described above!

Every time I try to access text-wrap panel my InDesign crashes.
Don't matter how I do it.
If I have an object selected and press ctrl+alt+w ID crashes.
If I have an object selected and click on panel's icon placed on my sidebar, ID crashes.
The only way I can make this work is opening the panel before to select the obejct.
