Disappearing images

working with picture—I will add via picture, an image say a image of a brick wall. I then add another image of a sign. Then I place the sign on the wall image — it disappears and I go to arrange sending the brick wall to the back and/or sending the sign to the front. Sometimes this works, sometimes not. I have also zoomed with my mouse and it will change–ie signs disappear behind the wall. The only way I can keep those signs on the brick wall is to put a hole in the brick wall–which is not really what I want to do.

I know this has come up before.

I am running a new iMac with a Radeon Pro 5500 XT 8 GB whatever that is. It is just the same with my older iMac with a Radeon R9 M390 2GB.

Hello - the draw ordering commands work on curves and annotations only. Planes like Picture objects need to be ordered ‘physically’ in 3d.


is there not a tracker running for such a wish to implement other objects either? i remember faintly also asking about this quite some time ago.

Thanks—will try that but it should be on the wish list if it’s not.
