Hi there, wondering if anyone could answer the little problem im having,

in the maps im adding the object for a device on my network, and the text goes in below the image, is there a way of putting the text before the image?

Dear James,

please hover the map items with your mouse. You will then see two arrow symbols. Using them, you can move map items to the back or to the front; every click moves them one layer, so you might have to click several times.

You can also select the object and define the layer number in its settings.

With PRTG 8.4, the map editor has been improved a lot. Please see blog article Rewrite of PRTG’s Map Editor—Now Supporting Drag & Drop for more details.
