03.14.19: Not worth the risk
DESIGN SOFTWARE is powerful stuff.
It allows us the capability of creating design elements and using them in ways that just weren’t possible decades ago. The approach above is one example.
It’s really very easy to create a pullout, set up a text wrap around it, then center it between two columns of text.
But…there’s a price to pay when you do so. Check the text on either side of the pullout. The wordspacing is mangled. It makes your newspaper appear sloppy and careless.
Such placement is not worth the risk.
