Layer Push Down ( Drawing Editor )

Tool summary :

  • Moves your current drawing's active layer down one position in the layer stack.
  • A drawing's active layer is the layer that is currently selected on the layer selection tool . If the selected layer is already at the bottom of the layer stack, then Layer Push Down does nothing.
  • Layers on drawings are Plotted in order. The bottom layer is plotted first. The top layer is plotted last. It is generally desirable to place opaque objects such as objects with a hatch or fill on lower layers.
  • For example, if a label is on a layer that is below a layer that has an image on it, you might want to move the image's layer down so that the label will print above the image.
  • An alternative way to push down a layer is to select it on the Edit Layers window, then press the " Move Down " button.
  • See the step-by-step instructions .
