I have a rectangular object in Snag IT Editor. I inserted a text box within the rectangle. However, I'm not able to use "Send to Back" with the rectangle or "Bring Forward" the text box. When either one is selected the options are disabled. It's weird because the opposite options seem to be enable (Bring Forward for the rectangle and Send to Back for the text box).

Sounds like normal functionality to me. The image you're placing the2 objects on.Cannot be moved forward or back.
You cannot "Send to Back"an object that's at the bottom of a "Stack of objects" already. Or "Bring Forward" what's already on top.
When you're working with only 2 objects, one is always on top "Forward".
The other is on the bottom "Back".
So 1 of actions will always be disabled when working with just 2 objects.

To add to Joe's comments, if you take a capture, that capture is FLAT. It is stuck on the canvas. So, you cannot move an object behind the image when it is stuck on the canvas.

If you want to be able to move the capture image back or forward, select the image and choose CUT. Then, PASTE it back onto the canvas. Now it is in a position where you can move something back or forward past the capture image.
