I have an object that is covered by a transparent bitmap and I cannot select the object without moving the bitmap. What can I do?

There are a few ways to select an object that is below another object, like a transparent bitmap.

  1. Use the Pick tool to move the top object off to the side so you can select and edit the object below. However, this may cause an issue with properly repositioning the top object after you are finished with the lower object.
  2. Select the lower object in the Objects docker (Window > Dockers > Objects). However, if you have a complex file it may take a bit of time to locate the correct object.
  3. Use the Digger tool, by holding down the Alt key while clicking with the Pick

Learn more about the Objects docker in our full tutorial Managing Objects, Layers and Pages.
