Changing the Drawing Order of Objects in AutoCAD 2000

By default, objects are drawn in the order they are created. DRAWORDER changes the display order of objects, moving one in front of another, for example.
Ordering ensures proper display and plotting output when two or more objects overlay one another. An example of when ordering may be necessary is when a raster image is drawn over existing objects, obscuring them from view.

To change the drawing order of an object

  1. Select the objects whose drawing order you want to change.
  2. From the Tools menu, choose Display Order.
  3. Select Bring to Front or Send to Back to indicate the drawing order of the selected objects. Or, select Bring Above Object or Send Under Object to select the object you want to move above or below.
