You can change the stack's layer order — also known as the z-order — of objects in your publication so that objects can appear on top of other objects.
The object is one of the following:
- An AutoShape
- A table
- A text box
- Clip art or a picture
- Select the object that you want to move.
If the object is hidden, select any object, and then press the TAB key or SHIFT+TAB repeatedly until the object that you want is selected.
To select more than one object at a time, hold down CTRL while you click the objects that you want to select, and then release CTRL.
- On the Arrange menu, point to Order, and then do one of the following:
- To bring an object to the front of the stack, click Bring to Front.
- To send an object to the back of the stack, click Send to Back.
- To bring an object one step closer to the front, click Bring Forward.
- To send an object one step toward the back, click Send Backward.
- To display an inserted picture as a background behind text, right-click the text box, click Format Text Box on the shortcut menu, click the Layout tab, and then click None or Through under Wrapping Style.
- To make an object in a stack transparent, click the object to select it (for a table, select the entire table), and then press CTRL+T. To make a transparent object opaque with a white fill, select it, and then press CTRL+T.
- To place the same image behind all objects on each page of your publication, insert the image on a master page, and then convert the picture to a watermark. For more information about working with master pages or creating watermarks, click the link in the See Also section.
