Wish Order of views in Designer tree

    I think it's a little confusing that the views in the Designer tree are ordered so that those at the bottom of the list are in fact on top of all the others from the user's point of view!
    Moreover, this is in contradiction to the dialog box which you get if you right-click on a view in the tree, which shows Bring to Front with an up arrow, Send to Back with a down arrow.

    My preference would be for those at the top of the tree list should be in front of all other views.
    Ideally I would like to be able to move items up and down the list one layer at time rather than just either moving them to the front or back. The best option would be to allow us to drag views up and down the tree, and give a clear indication which end of the tree is the front and which is the back.

    An option to reorder the items will most probably be included in the next version.

    I see your point about the order. However changing the order at this point will cause too much confusion.

    I thought you might be reluctant to change the order. However I think that maybe, if the view on top were shown at the top of the tree AND if TOP and BOTTOM of the tree were clearly indicated on the tree, then in the long run there would be less confusion...
