Problem selecting items

Jun 13, 2012

When I try to click on an individual item on a slide, it keeps selecting the box I have set as the background instead of the item I am trying to select. I sent the background to "Send to back" before inserting the additional elements; but this doesn't help. All items are on the same layer; so that isn't the issue. This is driving me nuts. 

Specfically, I have a slide with two boxes to create a two-tone background. Both boxes are grouped and sent to back. I then added a text box. When I try to click on the text box, the background group keeps getting selected. I have to keep clicking around until I hit the "magic" spot.

Does anyone know a trick to get around this?  (I miss the selection pane!).

thanks, Cathy
