I'm always having to make newsletters. I just can figure the text overflow thing out.

Is there something about the newsletter that needs Draw? What you are asking to do is fairly straightforward in Writer -- there's a chain icon in the toolbars for that very task.

@JKEngineer - I fully agree with you about the usage of Writer to create Newsletter.

However, how is the "chain"-icon you mention called in Writer?

It's called "Link Frames".

I was going to paste a screen capture showing it here, but it seems I can't. (How do you put images in comments or answers?) The Link Frames icon becomes visible when a frame is selected.

@JKEngineer - I need use the answer function to reply to your question about how to put images in an answer. It is not possible in a comment.

Click the marked button and you can attach the following file formats: '.jpg', '.jpeg', '.gif', '.bmp', '.png', '.tiff', '.odt', '.ods', '.odp', '.odg', '.odc', '.odf', '.odi', '.odm', '.ott', '.ots', '.otp', '.otg', '.odb', '.doc', '.docx', '.xls', '.xlsx', '.ppt', '.pptx'
