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:
Select the object you want to change.
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
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.

choose Bring to Front, but in this case it was easier to just change the
