Background image and Group Nodes

0 votes

I would like to place several Group nodes (min. 3 layers) in front of an image.


My problem is, that the image as a background works good with "normal" nodes, but when I try to open the group nodes the background image (a worldmap) always comes up front, even if I lowered its section to the bottom.

The group nodes without the image in the background works fine.

Is there a possibility to fix the image as a backround? I just added it to the yEd-File by copy-paste.


Thanks for your help.

You can set a dedicated background image in yEd's preferences (menu File > Preferences). To make the image move and scale like a regular diagram element, choose mode 'dynamic'.
