The z-order determines the order in which objects are drawn on the canvas. Those object with high z-order are drawn last and therefor drawn on top of objects with lower z-order. The order is determined by the order that the objects are listed in the SVG file.
Inkscape has a number of commands to change z-order. The commands are available from the Menu and via Keyboard Shortcuts. They are also available in the Controlli Strumento when the Strumento Selettore is active.
Page Up): Move selected object(s) up one step.→ (
Page Down): Move selected object(s) down one step.→ (
Home): Move selected object(s) to top.→ (
End): Move selected object(s) to bottom.→ (
The Editor XML dialog can also be used to change z-order.
