Moving and Positioning Objects
If an object on the bottom of the stack shows through after you place it on the
bottom, the object on the top of the stack is transparent or semi-transparent.
Transparent objects are like gauze curtains — they reveal what’s behind
them. If you want to make the object on the top of the stack less transparent,
see “Making a color transparent,” earlier in this chapter.
Controlling overlaps with the Selection pane
Another way to control how objects overlap is to open the Selection pane,
select an object, and click the Bring Forward or Send Backward button as
necessary to move the object up or down in the stack. Earlier in this chapter,
“Selecting objects so that you can manipulate them” explains the Selection
pane. (On the Format tab, click the Selection Pane button to open it.)
Rotating and flipping objects
Rotating and flipping objects — that is, changing their orientation — is a
neat way to spruce up a page or slide, as Figure 4-17 demonstrates. You
can rotate and flip these kinds of objects: lines, shapes, text boxes, clip-art
images, graphics, and WordArt images. To flip or rotate an object, select it
and do one of the following:
