Chapter 4. Working with Groups, Symbols,... > Arranging Multiple Groups

Arranging Multiple Groups

When objects are grouped they appear on top of shapes that aren’t grouped on the same layer. Each subsequent group that is created will appear on top of the last. This is called the stacking order. Flash allows you to change this order with the Arrange command. You can send a group or symbol to the bottom of this stack or bring one at the bottom to the top. Additionally, you can change the order incrementally.

Change the Stacking Order

1.
Select the group whose stacking order you want to change.

Click the Modify menu, point to Arrange, and then click:

  • Bring To Front. The selected object is brought to the top of the stack.

  • Bring Forward. The selected object is brought up one level in the stacking order.

  • Send Backward. The selected object is brought down one level in the stacking order.
