When I grip-select an image, or pick it at the "select objects" prompt, the image hides all other geometry behind it. Troublesome when trying to fine-tune the image(png background) location relative to other entities.
Image transparency on, draworder back, monochrome, image @ 0'-0"Z.
Image looks fine until I pick it.
Simple toggle in 2011? Thanks

Solved! Go to Solution.
When selected, the object becomes active and comes to the front: do you need to measure and move the object by actual distances instead of an eye-ball nudge?
Does moving all the other objects to the FRONT lessen the issue? Or the image at a small minus-Z distance so that it is truly under all the other objects?
Thanks. I know I cant snap to the image contents, just eyeballing.
Problem is that I cannot see what I am eyeballing TO.
Moved image to a negative Z, no good.
Moving other objects to front does not help.
This issue is new in 2011. When image is selected, its contents disappear, and its frame becomes like a face or a wipeout.
Please see attached.
IF nothing else works...
go to paper space, put in 2 concurrent viewports for the same area (copy/paste with Shift-ctrl-c/-v for basepoint),
then you can freeze the image in the "top" viewport" with the linework....
a runaround but might help
