Placing boxes behind text

Post by LeRoy Ferguson » Mon Oct 29, 2007 9:21 am

I know this must be dumb, but I cannot figure out how to see my text in a chart when a line box is drawn around a person's entry The text disappears behind an empty box. I've read all the Help info on lines, but nothing I have tried makes the text appear in front of (or rather inside) the box.

Hi LeRoy,

When you create a new box it becomes the top layer. This is why you then cannot see the text in, or under the box. The answer is to send the box to the back. Select the box then Menu -> Align -> Send to back; or [CONTROL] .

John :D
