Version 8.4 introduced the option for re-ordering the layers, according to the announcement page.

NO MORE AUTO LAYER SORTING
Layers were always sorted by layer type: camera layers first, containers last. In this new version, by unmarking the SORT LAYERS ON LAYER TYPE checkbox in the SETTINGS > GENERAL OPTIONS... dialog, you can order the layers as you like. Freely move them around with ALT [ ].



I have unchecked "Sort layers on layer type" and I have checked "Auto folding layers hierarchy", and I'm trying to reorder my layers by holding the ALT key while dragging one of the layers in the layer list dropdown ... but this is not altering my layer order.

I have also tried with "Auto folding layers hierarchy" not checked, and that did not work either.

Am I trying to do this incorrectly?

You can move layers around by pressing ALT [ and ALT ] or by choosing LAYER > BRING ACTIVE LAYER BACKWARD and LAYER> BRING ACTIVE LAYER FORWARD

Dragging layers in the dropdown listbox is not yet supported.

Hi Michiel,

Sorry, but I don't understand what you mean by that.

Pressing the ALT key and doing what?

You can find the [ and ] keys next to the P key on your keyboard:

Nevermind, I understand now that I looked at the menu and saw ...

BRING ACTIVE LAYER BACKWARD ALT+[
BRING ACTIVE LAYER FORWARD ALT+]

Sorry for being stupid.

Thanks for your help.
