Setting Object Order

When you place two objects on a slide, you might want part of one to appear on top of part of the other. This is called layering the objects. You can do this for pure visual effect or to indicate that the overlapping objects have a relationship to each other. PowerPoint lets you control each object's layering, so if two objects are layered and you want the one below to appear on top, you can change it. To rearrange an object's layer order, choose it, select the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar, and choose Order from the menu. You can also right-click and choose Order from the shortcut menu. Either way, a menu appears with four layering options:

  • Bring to Front— Brings the selected object to the front layer of the stack, placing all other objects behind it.

  • Send to Back— Sends the selected object to the back layer of the stack so that all other objects appear above it.

  • Bring Forward— Brings the selected object one layer closer to the front. This is most useful when more than two objects are layered.

  • Send Backward— Sends the selected object one layer to the back. This is also most useful when more than two objects are layered.
