When I created the box using the drawing tool, I moved it to the back.  Now, I want to edit it , but can't.

Hi MichaelDJ2000,

Why don't you send everything else in front of the box to the back then you can work with the box...

Hi,

1- Which program did you use?
2- Does this have to do anything with Frontpage?

Switch to the html or code view and locate the box in question

The code will look something like

<!--[if gte vml 1]><v:rect id="_x0000_s1026"
 style='position:absolute;left:160.8pt;top:142.8pt;width:1in;height:1in;
 z-index:-2'/><![endif]--><![if !vml]><span style='mso-ignore:vglayout;
position:absolute;z-index:-2;left:267px;top:237px;width:122px;height:122px'><img
width=122 height=122 src="new_page_113_files/image001.gif" v:shapes="_x0000_s1026"></span>

Find the part in the code that says

z-index:-2 (depending on the number of boxes you have this number will vary.)

Change to read:
z-index:-1

This will move it to the front.

To be safe, you may want

z-index:1000;

or set it to a very large number
