Order of objects

Order of objects

Order of objects

When editing a document, the objects are shown in the order that they were created. Some objects can be overlapped or obscure each other. To correct the situation, the order of the objects (their display on the screen) can be changed, one object can be placed in front of another.

Commands to change the order of objects allow you to regulate the display of overlapping objects in one plane.

 

NOTe: it is not possible to set a common order of objects for the model space and paper space: the order is set separately on each tab.

The Draworder command controls the order of drawing all objects. After running it, a prompt is displayed in the command line:

Enter object ordering option or [Above_objects/Under_objects/Front/Back]:

 

Commands to change the order of objects are shown in the Tools – Display Order and on the Display Order toolbar:

·         Bring to Front;

·         Send to Back;

·         Bring Forward;

·         Send Backward.
