I am having trouble with text falling out of image in a bounded text box when there is a variable fill in the box. How do I correct this?

By text falling out of image, I assume you mean that instead of wrapping, it's truncating the text when it's too long? If that's the case, try maybe slightly enlarging your text box. Sometimes, this can help with the text wrapping.

If the truncating is done at the bottom, it means the text becomes too long. An option you can then turn on is "Snap frame to content", which will dynamically resize the box to make sure all text fits in it. It's available in the text box's properties if you click on it and look at the Properties panel. (go to Window->Properties if you don't see that panel)

Hope that helps!
