Foreground and background

A graphic can be sent to the background as well. This is not the same as Bring Forward and Bring Back, which set the order of a number of overlapping graphics. This feature pushes a graphic to the back of the spreadsheet, behind the cells, allowing cells to be edited without affecting the graphic. One potential application of this feature is to create a form out of a graphic file; for example, to edit a tax form in Calc.

Figure 101 is an example of a tax form that was made into a graphic file and then had cells adjusted to allow text to be typed into specific locations. The grid lines below are blue for clarity.



A graphic that is in the background cannot be selected with the mouse. To select the graphic, use the Navigator (F5): all the graphics will be listed.. (If the graphic is named, selecting it will be even easier.)
