I have a mac computer and when I right click I’m not getting the options to
…bring forward…send back, ect to be able to use text boxes for matting
my photos. Could you help me?

@barbikelley I don’t have a Mac, but I think you can “right-click” by
holding down Control and then clicking. That should bring up the menu to
send items to the back or front.

I can’t get it to send to back when matting the entire layout, it wont go
behind the BNT paper that they have put it. Theres also not an option for
sending their paper to the front. Does it only work on certain layouts? I’m
using the “card trick” layout. Please help! Thanks!

@mleah73 I think it only works on layouts where the paper isn’t connected
to each other such as the pattern I used in the video. I tried it on “Card
Trick” and it only went behind the photos and embellishments. Sorry that I
couldn’t be more helpful! I’ll ask about this at Boot Camp and see if they
will put it on their list of updates to the program. 🙂

Thank you! I’m glad I’m not just having user issues! Ha ha. Let us know
if/when they update and I look forward to more videos.

Did anyone ever find out if they are going to fix the large matting on the
other layouts? I always want to use it and can’t get it going!
