How to change the order of drawing elements?
Use the DRAWORDER command.
A simple trick to bring entities on top without having to rely on DRAWORDER is to perform a cut/paste operation:
- Select the entity or entities.
- Press Ctrl X to cut the selection and copy it to the clipboard.
- Press Ctrl V; the selection is attached to the crosshairs.
- Press the Enter key to paste the entities at their original location.
The pasted entities become the latest or youngest entities, and therefore sit on top off older entities.
Note: DRAWORDER does not work when using rendered visualstyles in model space, or when a viewport having set a rendered visualstyle exists in paperspace.
