Applied Parameters: None
This command is used to move one object in front of another object in a stack of overlapping objects. The Schematic Editor/Schematic Library Editor automatically stacks objects, text and graphics in layers. Each object is on a different layer depending on the creation order and, therefore, it is possible to place objects so that they overlap. The objects created or added recently are always on the top layer.
This command can be accessed from the Schematic Editor and the Schematic Library Editor by:
- Choosing the Edit » Move » Bring To Front Of command from the main menus.
- Locating and using the Bring To Front Of command () on the Active Bar.
After launching the command, the cursor will change to a crosshair and you will be prompted to choose an object to move. Position the cursor over the object that you want to move then click or press Enter. You will then be prompted to choose an object that you wish to move the first object in front of. Position the cursor over this 'target' object then click or press Enter. The first object will be moved in front of this target object without changing its x or y coordinates.
Continue moving further objects, or right-click or press Esc to exit movement mode.
- When selecting the initial or target objects, if you click on an area where multiple possible objects overlap, a pop-up will appear containing all overlapping objects from which you can choose the desired object.
