Setting the Z-order for placeholdders



I’m trying to add an image behind the title placeholder of a slide, but when I do this, the image appears on top of the title. I would think the answer is to set the z order attribute for the placeholder to be above that of the picture (or visa versa), but placeholders don’t seem to have a z-order attribute.

How then can I ensure that any images loaded as a background, be set behind the title placeholder?

Help appreciated.



Dear Howdy,

Each placeholder has associated with it empty shape in Shapes collection.

You can change Z-order for this shape and placeholder will be moved too.

For TextHolder you can get this shape as TextHolder.ShapeRef.
