Draw order with blocks. Bug?


#1

Hi,

draw order commands (SendToBack, BringToFront, etc.) do not work with block instances. I would wish to use SendToBack, etc. on a block instance, which would make only the instance display behind all other objects.

Thanks

Bug inside blocks?

Yep, I see this not only does not work for block instances, it is also messy if used with objects inside a block. I have no idea what the prospects are for this - drawing blocks can get quite complicated I guess, but I’ll add it to the pile.

Hi @pascal,

Has the Draw Order for Instances been fixed?

Thanks

Hi Alan - Block instances still do not pay attention to draw order… objects in the block definition can have draw order applied and this is respected, but that is of course global for all instances.
