When you add pictures, shapes, and graphics, they can overlap. Change the way objects overlap in PowerPoint using Send to Back and Bring to Front to change the stacking order. And use the Selection Pane to find hidden objects.

Move an object to the back or front

  1. Select the object.

  2. Right-click and select an option:

    • Send to Back > Send to Back - to move the object behind, or in back of another object.

    • Bring to Front > Bring to Front - to move the object in front of another object.

Use the Selection Pane to find hidden objects

  1. If an object is hidden behind other objects, select Home > Select > Selection Pane.

  2. In the Selection Pane, reorder the objects how you want.
