Default Circle Unselectable

Hi,



I put a circle around a number in one of my documents and then I put it behind the text because it was filled in and the white covered the number. However predictably, the circle has now moved and is not positioned where it's supposed to be placed and now I need to move it back in its place again. Any suggestions how to select it?

I know you can insert special characters with a circle around them, but they are limited to just normal numbering, I'm using more customised numbering so I can't use the default character map which is a bit annoying but anyway.

Select another image in your file to bring up the Picture Tools Format ribbon and select Selection Pane. See also Selection Pane information below:

If you add the 'Select Drawing Objects' button to Word's Quick Access Toolbar (QAT), clicking on that will let you select images behind the text.
