    Element View Order

    I hate to ask these types of questions because one would think its a simple task.

    I would like to explicitly control the view order in the movie. I want to control which element is on top when two elements overlap.

    I have searched the help file and the menu options to no avail.

    I typically get a view order where the last active item is on top but recently I have run across an image text combination where half the text is under the image and half is on top of it. This is undesirable.

    The text element is being shown with the standard 'jumpup' action. The image is being shown with the standard 'scaleup' action.

    Any ideas?

    main thing is they are in the order they appear on the list of elements So to put an element on top just make sure its at the bottom of the list.

    There is a swapDepth action but that probably is not what you need.
