simple ? - select object behind other object?

Recommended Posts

Hello! Thought I'd start off by asking a basic question.

In layout mode, is there a way to select an object THROUGH another object in front of it?

There's gotta be a way.

Is there a way?

Click on the top object and Arrange > Send to Back. Your back object will then easily be selectable. After doing whatever you need, select it and send it to the back where it started.

Another way, drag around both objects to select them both. Then, with your cursor over the top of them, [shift] click your top object - which will de-select it. You then will only have your back object selected and you can use your arrow keys (or Object Resize box) to move it; or use Menu format (or Status Area) controls. wink.gif

It used to be that Command-Click would select the object underneath. Dunno if it was FMP or PageMaker, and I dunno if it still works.
