Locking a background object in a template

Postby whites11 » Sat May 24, 2008 11:09 am

Hi all!
i'm building a custom template for my presentations.
It consists in a background image and a few rectangles as background objects.
it's a bit difficult to add text above this rectangle because clicks on the slides causes the selection of the background elements.
is there a way to "lock" this elements to avoid the selection ability? must i create a custom image for the background with all the elements in it?
thanks in advance for any help.
ask me if you need more explanation
bye

Anything that should not be selectable in the drawing, you can put in the slide master.
Menu View - Master (You should now see the Background objects tab instead of the three default layer tabs.)
Modify your background.
Menu View - Normal

Glad it helped, and please forgive my confusing remarks about tabs. :oops:
I thought I was replying in the Draw forum, but luckily the Impress menu is quite similar in this area.
