Controlling the Render Order
When working with overlapping plants, fill regions, and
other objects, you can control which ones are rendered first. For example, you
can use this to ensure your plants appear on top of the lawn.
To change an object's render order:
1. Select the object
you want to change.
2. If you want the
object to render on top of all other objects, select Edit > Bring to
Front or press Ctrl+F. Or, if you want the object to render beneath
all other objects, select Edit > Send to Back or press
If you want to
bring the object one more step towards the top of a group of overlapping
objects, select Edit > Bring Forward or press F. Or, if you
want to bring the object one more step towards the bottom of a group of objects,
select Edit > Send Backward or press B.
Note: You can change multiple objects with this
command. That is, selecting multiple objects and using Bring to Front
will cause the selected objects to render in front of the unselected objects.
In the following example, the Region object was used to
add a new driveway.
Notice how the region is incorrectly rendering on top of
the plants. This is easily fixed by selecting the driveway and using the Send
to Back command. The result is shown below.
Of course, you could also select all of the plants and
choose Bring to Front, but in this case it was easier to just change the
