I am working in Illustrator and trying to place an object over another object however it will not bring it all the way to the front. Should I be saving it in a different file format first.
I am working on a board game and want to put various symbols and images on the squares. Some place where I want them and some stay tucked behind the squares on the background color.

Same problem here,But I have a solutions simply click and drag to the top layer.

Penny,

What happens if you select the object and then Ctrl+X and Ctrl+F?

It still goes behind the squares and onto the background. Some images placed properly but I'm not sure what the difference is.

Problem solved!!! I turned off the other layers before placing the objects.
Thank you for your help. This is what happens when somebody behind the desk thinks that they can play designer. I really respect what you guys do.
