Unfortunately, this cannot work for layers because of block hierarchies.
The drawing order of an entity on a layer in a block is defined by the drawing order of the block reference. It cannot be moved further back than the drawing order of the block reference.
- Code: Select all
A) Line on layer "0", drawing order 0
B) Block reference on layer "0", drawing order 1
B1) Line on layer "0"
B2) Line on layer "red"
C) Line on layer "0", drawing order 2
Moving layer "red" to the background, would only be possible if the block reference would be exploded.
It's possible to change the order of A,B,C and the order of B1,B2 but not something like B2,A,B,B1,C
