[ISO/IEC 29500-1 1st Edition] suppressOverlap (Prevent Text Frames From Overlapping)

This element specifies whether a text frame which intersects another text frame at display time shall be allowed to overlap the contents of the other text frame. If a text frame cannot overlap other text frames, it shall be repositioned when displayed to prevent this overlap as needed.

If this element is omitted on a given paragraph, its value is determined by the setting previously set at any level of the style hierarchy (i.e. that previous setting remains unchanged). If this setting is never specified in the style hierarchy, then overlap shall be allowed between a text frame which intersects another text frame displayed at the same location.

[Example: Consider a document with two text frames which are allowed to overlap each other. If the second text frame should overlap the contents of another text frame, that constraint would be specified via the following WordprocessingML:

<w:framePr … />
    <w:suppressOverlap />

The resulting text frame with the suppressOverlap property specified would never overlap any intersecting text frames. end example]
