Chapter 2. Page Layout > Stacking Objects

Stacking Objects

Page items on an InDesign page can be arranged in front of or behind each other. You can imagine that every object exists on an invisible plane that it cannot share with other objects, if you like. These planes can be shuffled to place one object above another, or behind another.

Simple stacking isn’t the only way to control the front-to-back order of objects on a page—layers are another, and usually better, method (we cover layers in the next section). Arranging objects on a single layer, however, is very similar to tasks we perform every day as we stack and sort physical objects (our lives, for example, seem to revolve around stacks of paper).
