# Here is help for when you can’t seem to select a magnet line or other object to edit or move it

#1

Are you having trouble selecting your magnet line or other object in order to drag it or edit its properties or even to delete it? Then this tip is for you!

PROBLEM SCENARIO:

Sometimes you have drawn an object such as a line a few days ago to act as a magnet line or maybe an arrow. Now time has passed and you want to edit that line or other object to make it less important or even to remove it but no matter what you do you can seem to open its properties menu or even to select it.

THE CAUSE:

HERE IS THE QUICK FIX:

So, thinking back to “The Cause” in the order of things you will need to put the layer containing the deviation levels lower than the layer containing your magnet lines.

1: With your left mouse button you will click and release the deviation level that’s on top of your magnet line.

2: Now press and hold down your Shift Key.

3: While still holding down the shift key you will roll the wheel on your mouse to scroll the layers. You want to move this layer lower in the order of things. (just roll the wheel, don’t press it down) The higher the layer number is, the lower in the stack of layers it goes.

As you start to roll the wheel you will see on the screen “Level 12 of 36” or something like that. As you scroll to make the number higher, you will be moving the object you selected lower down in the stack layers.

You just need to roll the wheel enough to make the layer a higher number than where you line is. Keep moving the number higher up until it’s a higher number than your line and then you will be able to select your line.

If you scroll all the way to the highest number then you will have moved the deviation level all the way down to the lowest item in the stack of layers. Thus all items on the chart will be higher in the stack of layers than the deviation levels.

However, you will most likely only want to lower the deviation level enough to get low enough that you will be able to select your line. Because depending on how low in the stack you send it, the “Deviation Levels” will appear over or below the bars or other items on your chart.
