I updated the tutorial on Customising PagePlus — a few errors were fixed, and some links were added.

Not really an advanced tutorial, but fitting text to a circular path is a fairly frequent question, so I have added a PagePlus file to my tutorials on creating Logos.

I just added a tutorial on how to add text that seems to go behind an object in an image. It's in PagePlus X7 format, so that users can see how it works.

Text Behind Image

Geoff's comments below are a waste of my time. Duplicating a linked image and using cut-out studio on it will create an embedded copy and bloat the file. Embedding the image will bloat the file even more. Of course, I had to embed the image in my tutorial, or no one would be able to see it. I resized the original to keep it small.

Contrary to what the tutorial claims, duplicating the picture does not increase the PagePlus file size, since the picture is saved only once, but used twice.

It will cause a PDF version to be larger, but this can be mitigated by cropping most of the upper picture away, except for the area needed to hide the text, and Converting to Picture.

Using the cutout studio on a duplicate is likely to be less work, quicker, and give a cleaner result. But the best method will depend on the circumstances. Using an irregular crop on the text in the attached would not be very easy. It was just a few clicks using Cutout Studio on a duplicate.

I updated my tutorial on Formatting Footnotes to include tips on using custom number formats, and inserting cross-references to footnotes.
