Working with Layers of Objects

Working with Layers of Objects

As you place objects onscreen, they might start to overlap, creating layers of objects where the lower layers are often difficult or impossible to select. To move objects in layers, perform the following steps:

  1. Click the object you want to move up or down in the stack. If the Drawing toolbar is not available in the PowerPoint window, right-click on any toolbar and select Drawing from the menu that appears.

  2. Click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar to open the Draw menu, and select Order , as shown in Figure 11.2.

    Figure 11.2. Use the Draw menu on the Drawing toolbar to change the layer on which a graphic appears on your slide.


  3. Select one of the following options:

    • Bring to Front Brings the object to the top of the stack.

    • Send to Back Sends the object to the bottom of the stack.

    • Bring Forward Brings the object up one layer.

    • Send Backward Sends the object back one layer.

Using the different layering settings allows you to superimpose images on top of other images. For example, you could place an image of a bird on top of a picture of the sky. You can also use these settings to superimpose text on a graphic.
