Send (Forward/Backward) Problems

Recommended Posts

When a selection of objects is sent to the top or the bottom of the stacking order on a layer (Cmd-F or Cmd-B on the MAC), the stacking order of the selection gets reversed. It never worked reliably in my opinion (frequently the top or bottom object would get misplaced), but now it works even worse.

OK, I noticed that if you hit Cmd-F twice (Send to Front), the order reverses itself back to the original stacking order (the same is true if you select Send To Back or hit Cmd-B twice), but try using the Send Forward or Send Back menu items and see what happens. The order of the selected objects gets completely jumbled, and NO, hitting it twice or many times does not restore the original order.

Does anybody have any issues with this, or is this a feature I need to learn to live with?

I am currently using 8.5.2. Is there any improvement in VW9?

As far as I can tell in 9.0.1, the order is maintained, using both shortcuts and the menu items. However, that's only in my current session. Ask me again tomorrow and the answer MAY be different. wink.gif" border="0
