Send to Back / Bring to Front Not Working in Map Designer

I am creating a map and trying to layer a custom map object on top of an object (Light grey box with black border in this case). The "Send to Back" or "Bring to Front" button doesn't seem to work anymore. It did earlier today on another part of the same map. My browser is Google Chrome Version 57.0.2987.133.

Thanks.

John

Hello John,

thank you for the KB-Post. Please try clicking on these buttons several times. They actually don't set the object on the foremost or last z-layer, rather than just bringing it one level forth or setting it one level back.
So it is likely necessary to bring the object forth/back several z-layers, which requires multiple clicks on the according button. I just tested this on my PRTG and it did work that way.

best regards.

Thanks for the quick response. I actually figured out that by changing the layer number in the objects property, you can quickly bring it to the foreground or background as you like. Use a very low number (like 1) to bring it to the background or a very high number (like 999) to bring it to the foreground. Much faster than clicking. :)

Yes, you're right, that works even better. Sorry, I totally forgot about that.
