Put an image in the background:

  • Create a node on the map with the image you want to be the background using your favorite method for creating nodes.

  • Select the direct selection tool. (Shortcut key 'v' or the White Arrow tool in the first toolbar drop-down.)

  • Drag the image out of the node you created on to the map, and resize it how you see fit.

  • Delete the original node.

  • - Now you have an image on your map without any node wrappers.

    Make it static:

  • Open the 'Layers' window (Windows/Layers) and lock the layer (put the pointer in the layer on the 'Layers' window and you will see a locker).

  • Create a new layer and select it (you can rename them by duble-clicking the layer name). Then you can close the window.

  • - Now your background image is glued and you can freely work on top of the image.

    Bonjour de France,

    Thanks for sharing.
    I just begin to work with VUE.
    My goal is to use it as a process managing tool in teamwork.
