The order of layers listed in the Map Data Layers panel determines how layers are drawn on a map. The layers listed at the top of the Map Data Layer panel will draw over those listed below them, and so on, down the list. You can easily move layers around to adjust their drawing order.
How to Change a Layer’s Draw Order
Follow these steps to change a layer’s draw order:
- From within the Map Data Layers panel, click and drag the layer up or down in the layer listing. A black line indicates where the layer will be placed.
- Release the mouse pointer to drop the layer in its new position.
