          Hi Emac,

           

          You can't do layering in Qlik Sense, every object has its own area, can't overlay each other.

            Hello Emma,

             

            As Gabor has mentioned, layering is not possible in the Qlik Sense analysis / edit design interface, but is possible in the Storytelling interface, (as you could layer snapshots and text and graphics and images) however - that is really only for presentation and collaboration purposes.

             

             

            However, it appears you are trying to create graphical tabs and want to overlay text on top, where the txt / metrics will obviously change based on user selections.

             

            Due to the responsive nature of the interface auto-adjusting is possible, you may be able to override the behavior by changing the object type - (Image, Text, Image and Text) to get it to be close / next to the image, (if not a tab) but it will not overlay it.
