In an example of PSM usage (the 'Flyers' example), it makes reference to word wrap and text box overflow - the example shows graphics/images coming in from the right edge into a flowing text box and causing the text to runaround. How is this achieved?

You can do that with multiple text boxes. Place your image on the screen, then create text boxes to surround it. One on top of the image, one to the left(or right), and one at the bottom.

Then select the first text box, go to Text->Create Forward Link, and click on the second text box. Then, select the second text box, go to Text->Create Forward Link again, and click on the third text box.

This way, the text will flow through the three text objects, and wrap around the image.

Hope that helps.
