Arranging drawn objects

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

A sketch may contain a number of overlapping objects. As you build the sketch, you may want to arrange how these objects overlap. For example, you may want to bring the object at the bottom to the top, or place the object at the top below the other objects. Or you may want to move objects up or down among a set of overlapping objects.

  1. Select the object you want to arrange.

  2. On the Home tab, click Arrange, and then click the option you want:

    • Click Bring to Front or Send to Back to place the object at the top or bottom of the set of objects.

    • Click Bring Forward or Send Backward to move the object up or down among the set of objects.
