Moving an Object to the Background

Objects Selectable or select the “Background objects are selectable” checkbox in the
Wrap inspector, select the object, and then reposition or edit the object.

Arrange > Make Background Objects Selectable, select the background object, and
then choose Arrange > “Bring Background Objects to Front.” Now you can move the
