Changing layer stacking order no long works.

Recommended Posts

Does not work by drawing in the organization window and does not work by changing the stacking order number field in the Edit Layer dialogue.  Does not work in document creating originally in 19, nor one in a file originally created with 17.  Mojave.  Current.  VW current.

Check whether you are listing your layers alphabetically - instead of numerically. Click the number column of the title bar of the Organization Palette or Navigation Palette.

Thanks BCD.  That fixed the problem, though I don't know how it came about in the first place.  Behavior is restored to the way it has been the last 25 years.

One of my colleagues had this problem a moment ago.

Finding this thread was a huge help.

Such an easy thing to accidentally change with an errant click.


Thanks for posting fellas.
