The Tight wrapping style is best used for irregularly shaped objects, for example a star. Selecting Tight makes the text hug the shape of the object, wrapping closely to all the edges. If there is a transparent border around the object, the text will not overlay the transparent area. You can edit the wrapping boundaries to set how close the text should be to the boundary.
The Square wrapping style wraps text in a square around the object, no matter what the object shape is. You can edit the wrapping boundaries to set how large of a square the text should leave.
