    Hi,

    As of today, I’m having issues selecting text. It appears I am only able to select a text element (which is set to be the foremost layer) if there is no other element behind it. I am trying to layer an image element behind the text, and even though I can see the text on top of the image, I am unable to select it unless I move the image background out of the way first. I’m unable to complete my project.

    Hi Sarah,

    Thanks for reaching out to us! Sorry to hear that you’ve run into this issue.

    Sometimes it can be really difficult to select text when there are other elements behind it. Here are some suggestions:

    1. You can keep clicking on the text until it selects. Try positioning the cursor exactly over one of the letters and clicking until it selects.

    2. You can also move all the elements behind it out of the way, then click the text to select it, then undo so that all the elements move back to where they were. The text will stay selected and you can then edit its wording or other properties.

    I hope this helps! Please let us know if we can be of any further assistance.

    – Regards, The Ribbet Team
