3.1 Order of objects

An Ipe drawing is a sequence of geometric objects. The order of the objects is important—wherever two objects overlap, the object which comes first in Ipe's sequence will hide the other ones. When new objects are created, they are added in front of all other objects. However, you can change the position of an object by putting it in front or in the back, using the "Front" and "Back" functions in the Edit menu.
