How do I Change the Order in which Objects are Displayed?

Moving Objects in front or behind each other has been extended.  Changes in this are now remembered by ADE.

Find the current Drawing Layer

Find the current Drawing Layer

Move the cursor over an object and the tooltip will show the current drawing layer.  In this case the tower object is in layer 39.

It is over the tower view point that is currently in layer 40.  

Change the Order using Menus

To move the tower view point in front of the object:

  • Select the Tower Viewpoint
  • Right Click
  • Select either Move Forward or Move to Front.

Selecting Move to Front brings the Tower Viewpoint into the top layer (layer 4).  Alternatively you could select the tower object and use either Move Back or Move to Back.

ADE will remember these changes when you save and load the project file again.

Change the Order using the Keyboard

A quick alternative to the menu is to use keyboard short cuts to change the order of the selected object:

  • Move  Forward - Ctrl + Home
  • Move Back - Ctrl + End
  • Move to Front - Alt + Home
  • Move to Back - Alt + End

I have ADE version 1.7. The layer edits (bring to front, etc.) are not in the menus. How do I edit object layer displays? I haven't seen in the various menus where I can change an objects layer. Can you help?
