I have three text boxes and three images containing links I wish to copy from a completed page into another page.

I tried to select them by holding the Ctl key. Is there a way to do this to save time?

Yes... You are very close to figuring it out. Instead of the Ctrl key, hold down the Shift key, select the items you wish to group, and then check theĀ  "Group Elements" box which you'll see on the right side of the SiteBuilder.

Hey Mike. How can I select an element which is behind another one? I can only get the one on top. In Sitebuilder, there is a window on the right top side which allows you to click and select on any element of the page. This window does not exist in Sitebuilder plus.

Layer the smaller image on top of the larger image so that you can click on it. After you get them grouped and moved to where you want, you can reorder the layering if necessary.

Ok I see the trick. However, after I have reordered them correctly, I need to select all of the items in order to group them once they are in the corrected order. How can I select all of the elements if one is hidden behind the front one in order to group them?

layer the smallest images on top, so you can click the larger ones in the back, then group them (and move them if necessary). once they are moved, then you can ungroup them and relayer if necessary.

That is fine however, if I want to keep an image underneath a larger one and group them like that I cannot do it, For example, if I put a border around an image, it is impossible to group the two together because I simply cannot select the image behind the border.

You'll just need to move the smaller image separately then, and layer the grouped images on the top.

Hi Andre,

I closed the other ticket as you created it and were the only participant. This thread was started by another user, so I don't want to close the whole ticket. You should be able to remove your own posts from the topic, if you really want to.

Let us know if you have any questions about this.
