How to change the order of objects on the Stage?

Learn how to bring objects forward or backward

When you've put multiple objects on the Stage, you will need to decide and rearrange which objects are on top of others and which objects are behind others. For example, when you want to use a picture or video object as a background, you will have to move it backwards, behind all other objects that are on the Stage at that moment.

There are two ways to accomplish this: either using the object's right-click menu on the Stage, or using the layers of the Timeline. This print screen illustrates the link of order of objects between the Stage and Timeline:
