How to edit objects I can't see on a slide in Keynote

I have a Keynote slide with multiple objects, including jpgs and text layers. I can “Show Object List,” but can’t figure out how to edit one of the text layers because I can’t see it. Can I hide the other objects on the slide while editing the text layer? Seems like it should be something easy to do!


Hello, I usually deal with this problem by selecting the items which are obscuring the text I want access, and in the Arrange menu on the menu bar, moving those items as a group to the back. After editing the text, I select the text box and move that to the back so everything is then returned to the same order that it was before I started.
