Layer Ordering

Post by MichaelvanK » Wed Jul 08, 2020 9:26 am

Hi Team,

I was just trying to tidy up my layers so that I could find things easier, usually by putting the things near the top of the map at the bottom of the layer stack.

If I select a single item and click Ctrl + Shift + B it gets shoved to the bottom of the stack correctly.

However, if I select multiple items and try and do the same, the Shift to Back functionality is disabled. This means that I have to shift each object individually!

Would it be possible to make it work and retain the current order of the shifted items, but put that sub-stack at the back of the layers?

I will add it to our layers clean-up list. For next version it will only be for multiple items of the same type, but we will look into mixed types for later versions. Thank you for the feedback!

Hi Katie,

I was only doing this with objects within a single parent on the tree. I had not tried with items under multiple parents and, to be honest, can't see the benefit of that anyway.

Hugs.
