When I try to insert the image I get: [The content type of this image is not allowed.] It is the right mb and pixels. I guess some things are just beyond me - perhaps Indesign is one. Lou Ann
Would it be better if I saved it as a pdf?
Me again. I was able to move the whole page to the side after I clicked it once and the only thing remaining was the one photo I needed to fix. So the immediate problem has been solved. But I still cannot upgroup the remainder of the page and when the whole page is back in place I still cannot select that one photo or any other individual item.
You can embed an image in your post by using the camera icon on the web page like this:
It sounds like the group is in front of the other things you want to select. If that's true, holding the Ctrl (Windows) or Cmd (mac) key while clicking will allow you to clcik down through the stack to select obscured objects.
Another tactic is to use layers and to lock or hide a layer so that the objects on it cannot be selected.
I like your final idea better. I’ve gotten more and more reliant on the layers panel for this type of thing.
I find it the most efficient way of managing object heavy pages.
No argument here.
Peter and Bob,
This is my first experience using InDesign and I am making some progress through trial and error. I must admit I like PageMaker much better for my low sophistication of use.
I will try the Ctrl thingy and carry on.
Thanks again. This forum is great
