selecting stacked items/images - Adobe Indesign Windows

Please forgive me if I've posted this before. I am having problems selecting and moving items that are stacked. I have a text box on top of agraphic on top of a background. I can ctrl click through till the graphic is highlighted but when I try to move it (after the cursor has changed shape), it moves the text that was on top of it. What am I missing? thanks...

    Each object has a control point at its centre. Once the object is selected, you have to grab that point.

    Thanks for the tip. I'm still stuck in PagMaker mode.

    Now that I have time to think about it, that doesn't seem to be an
    improvement.
