    Question How to bring back image from behind text - Windows 2010

    I am just looking for help.
    I have inserted a picture on my quotes (Word doc) ‘behind text’.
    However, when I want to remove it or change it to another picture I cannot find any way to click on it to bring up the PICTURE toolbar.
    When I click on the picture nothing happens as it is behind the text, so it appears I can no longer “get to it”..
    How can I access it again?

    If you add the 'Select Drawing Objects' icon to Word's Quick Access Toolbar, clicking on that will allow you to select an object that's behind the text. The alternative is to temporarily insert some empty paragraphs so that the text in front of the image moves out of the way.
    Cheers,

    Generally when I have an image behind text in the document layer, I find that if I move the text out of the way (temporary empty paragraph marks) I can click on the image. Are you sure that your image is not in the header/footer layer? The only way to reach such an image manually is to go into the Edit Header/Footer screen and scroll down to the image.

    Paul's suggestion of the 'Select Drawing Objects' button is available without adding it to the QAT first.

    Go to the Home Tab and on the extreme right hand side is Editing>Select>Select Objects. Once you have chosen this, you can click on the text overlying the graphic to select the graphic itself. Double click elsewhere to change the selection mode back to text.
