Moving Backward and Forward

ProtoShare stacks components as they are added to the design. The stacking order is given by the order in which components are added, with the most recently added component on top.

The component on the top of the stack normally appears on top of (overlays) other components in the design, although a component’s z-index setting can override the normal stacking order.

To move a component on the canvas:

  1. Right-click the component.
  2. Select Bring Forward, Send Backward, Bring to Front or Send to Back from the context menu.

These actions are also available in the Layout menu.

To move a component using the outline:

  1. Select the component.
  2. Drag the component up or down in the outline and drop it in the new location.
