How to bring box from back to the front for editing? Now, I can't click on the box to edit.

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

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.

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?

To be safe, you may want

z-index:1000;

or set it to a very large number
