Movin’ and Groovin’ and Layin’ to the Beat Now

We were movin’ and groovin’ and jamming to the beat, just when it hit me and I heard somebody shout, “Drag that layer by its shield now. Drag that layer where you want!” Don’t you sing while you work? Assuming that you know the tune “Play That Funky Music, White Boy” by Wild Cherry, you’ll never be able to drag a layer by its shield again without thinking of this tip. When you have a layer selected, its corresponding anchor point (that little yellow shield-looking thingy) also is highlighted. If you click and drag the layer by its anchor point, the corresponding code is moved right along with it, effectively changing the order of your code and shields. If you don’t see what I’m talking about, make sure that View > Visual Aids > Invisible Elements is enabled. If you’ve previously disabled them, turn on Invisible Elements for Anchor Points for Layers in Preferences.
