I can't seem to find a way to alter the order the layers are shown at the bottom of the screen. Is there a way to do this? How? Thanks. LO Version:, Mac OS 10.14.4, MBP 15" retina mid 2015

In addition to @Grantler answer, please note that Draw's "layers" are not real layers, but "labels." The order of the objects in the drawing is set in a case by case basis independently from the layer in which the object was created: layers are only used to group objects and assign to them, all at once, some properties, such as making them invisible, not printing them, even protect them from modifications independently from the other objects attached to the other "layers."

Obviously there is no way to do that, same in ancestor program OpenOffice. Despite other drawing programs it is not possible to change entire layers in arranging (to front or background), only the single objects (or groups etc) indipendent of layer...
