Hi Girvin,

I am trying to edit a Jpeg picture in Draw by drawing objects on top of
the picture.  However, I am having a problem selecting my objects.  Draw
keeps selecting the larger underlaying picture instead of the object I
want it to select.  I tried to select an area, but as soon as I make the
first click at the first corner, it selects the underlying picture.  I
tried protecting the underlying picture using the procedure in help.
That keeps the picture from being modified, but it still gets selected.
I "Sent it to Back", but that does not work either.  Is there a way to
keep a draw object from being selected or to select overlying objects only?

Draw has the very nice feature of layers. You get easy access to it with right click on the tabs at the bottom of the edit window.

Insert a layer, move the picture to the new layer and lock the new layer.
Go back to the layer "layout" and make your drawings.

Kind regards
