I am just beginning to use indesign and i have a simple page filled with a new colour but when i go to import a new logo onto the page ,it disappears after i drag it from the border onto the page,i have a feeling it is a setting with layers i have not set up correctly but for the life of me ,i cant get to grips with the problem and would appreciate any tips to rectify the problem.
Can you post one screen shot of your layers panel and another one of your links panel?
Tnx jmlevey, but when i played with moving the text up the layers then this solved the issue and i appreciate you taking the time to reply.Garry
Your problem may have nothing specificly to do with Layers, per se. I suggest putting your colored page background either on a Master page which, by default, will lock it once you return to your document page. From there go ahead and use File > Place to import your logo. This should solve your problem. If it doesn't, it's possible that the logo is somehow ending up on a layer beneath the layer on which you created your colored background. If that's the case, either drag the lower layer above the layer with the colored background, or drag and drop the logo file up to a higher or layer.
Tnx Scott but when i played with moving the text up the layers then this solved the issue and i appreciate you taking the time to reply.Garry
Something that isn't always clear to some beginners is that there are layers, and that items on any given layer also have a stacking order. Think of it like layers being floors of a building, and the stacking order are items on one floor. The table on the 3rd floor is higher than the rug on the 3rd floor, but the rug on the 3rd floor is higher than the table on the 2nd floor. Object>Arrange lets you control the stacking within the layer, and if you click the arrow in the Layers window, you can expand it to see the stacking within the layer.
