Well, it worked on one frame as well. I introduced another layer,
promoted the image to that, but still I could not define margins to
the text.

True. XYZ defines the position of the image frame. Form gives the
option to let text flow around the frame and would be the right place
to define the margins, if only I could find out how to do it. The
Image tab gives the opportunity to define the dimensions of the image,
but I would prefer to use the automatic scaling property, which is an
alternative to that option.
