Chapter 5. Design-O-Mite!: Explosive Lay... > Changing Layer Stacking Order

Changing Layer Stacking Order

A layer’s stacking order is controlled by the z-index. The higher the z-index, the closer to the front the layer appears in the browser. When you are working with multiple layers and need to change the z-index property, you will find that using the Property inspector can be a bit monotonous and tedious. The Layers panel (choose Window > Layers, or press F2) makes changing the z-index much easier. Click and drag the layer name within the Layers panel to where you want the layer to appear, and, automatically, each layer’s z-index property will be adjusted to the new order. If you want to change a single layer’s z-index without affecting the other layers, click the number in the Z column and type the new z-index value. When you’re done, either press Enter (Return) or click elsewhere in the workspace.
