I am trying to place a color rectangle behind text and graphics, but when I try, the color will NOT behave and go to the back. There must be a way to make the Arrange function work for such a simple effect. Sometimes, all options are greyed out. CS6 v.8.
Send to back only sends to the back of a layer. Make sure you put that
rectangle on a lower layer.
As Bob says, the arrange function is layer by layer, and in addition, all master page objects on any layer will be behind all document page objects on the same layer.
