  1. Select the element(s) you wish to bring forward or send backward in the canvas overlap order.

  2. Locate the Order controls among the Arrange controls in the toolbar or right-hand sidebar.

  3. Select the desired operation from the available options.

    Forward brings selection one step forward in the current on-canvas order.

    Front brings selection to the front of the current on-canvas order.

    Backward sends selection one step backward in the current on-canvas order.

    Back sends selection to the back of the current on-canvas order.

    Elements are by default ordered on the canvas based on the order in which they are placed or created, with the exception that copied elements are placed directly in front of their source elements.
