Does anyone know how to create a text wrap in Sketch 3. I've scoured the internet and the best solution I've found is "use different text boxes" which does not seem ideal.

"You can't get there from here."

This is a GLARING omission from an otherwise excellent app, which should include the layout capabilities of all basic CSS. Float/wrap is intrinsic to web layout and way too difficult to achieve as a mockup in Sketch the way it's currently (not) implemented. Unfortunate.


In your text settings, set the Width to fixed.

enter image description here

Then you can drag the box to arrange your column width.

You could also draw a box with the Text tool before you type/paste in your copy. This would set Width to Fixed automatically.

    But neither of those achieves what the OP was inquiring about: a text wrap.
