Often, an element will be placed behind or in front of another element. Because of this, you might have difficulty selecting or deleting a specific element. You can solve this by bringing the element forward.

 

To bring an element forward: Click the element > from the pop-up menu, click the Bring forward icon. You will, then, be able to move, edit or delete the element.

Alternately, if you are unable to click the element to select it, click the element in front of it > click the Send backward icon to send that element behind the element that you are trying to access.

Note: For an element in your header, when unchecking the Show on all pages box, the element might move behind the header causing it to appear inaccessible. To access the element, move the header backwards as described above or use Ctrl + M to toggle through the elements on your page until the element is selected.

    Moving text boxes

    I can add text boxes with ease, however sometimes I can't move them about the page. They seem to be locked in place. Is there something that I need to turn off?

    On my site I have a html item that I suddenly can not move or delete. I have tried to bring this to the top in case things are stopping it from being selected (or sending other items back) but no joy. The item has recently been selected to show on all pages and is a Tripadvisor app.

    Can you help please?

      I have also tried using Ctrl + M to select the item but it doesn't move to this. If I can just delete it and start again that would be fine but can't find a reason why I can not select this item.

      Didn't work. The image is not selectable, and the "bring forward" and "delete" buttons are grayed out.

      Hi,

       

      Your page is sent to the front and covering items that are located underneath it, which makes some items in your site unreachable and therefore you cannot edit them.

       

      In order to send it to the back, you need to click on the page and click “send backwards” until it cannot be pressed anymore (it will turn into faded colors once it is sent all the way to the back).

       

       

      For more information, click here.

       

      After doing so, you’ll be able to reach all items and edit them as you please.

       
      Should you have any further questions, please let us know! Thanks, Customer Solutions

    I can't select an image to delete it

    I have an image seems to be locked. I can't select the image and it is in the background of all of my pages. I have sent all of the other layers to the back but it still doesn't allow me to select it.  I simply inserted the image like I have all the others. I have tried logging off etc. but no luck. How can I delete it?

      Hi,

       

      Your menu buttons are not working because you have placed an empty text box on top of it.

       

      You can solve this by deketing or bringing the textbox backward. I've merged your query with the relevant thread.

    Editing a text box

    For some reason I'm unable to edit a text box on my website here: http://markzuiderveld.wix.com/vignettes. I only want the text box that reads: "Fireworks and romance..." on the main page but not the others. Whenever I click on it, it won't select it. Is this a bug on the wix website? Someone help. Mark
