Getting to the right panel

Hello.  I have a fairly complex form with many controls grouped in panels.  Although the idea of panels is great I need some advice about manipulating them. Specifically:

  1. Unless I leave a little extra space within a panel to "select it" (e.g., to reposition it) I can't get to it. I've found that the only way to do this is to move one of the controls to the side, which exposes the panel. Isn't there a better way? Sending to forward or back doesn't seem to help.
  2. I have at least 10 panels so finding my way among them is important.  Yet, when I look at the "Controls in Use" (CIU) display, all the panels are simply called "Panel" which doesn't help much, especially since their position in this display changes.  I tried adding a title to the panels, which does indeed identify them in the CIU display...great, just what I wanted, except that now the titles appear on the form too, which messes everything up.  Is there a way to identify the panels so they can be identified in CIU but not show up in the form itself?

 

Thanks, in advance.
