Is there currently a way, without using layers, to choose which objects are drawn on top of each other? i.e. the order of drawing...
How long will I have to wait for this feature to be implemented? (I am not complaining of course, you guys do a great job, but I need to know if I need to use layers for this manner)
I guess you want a feature like Z ordering from Classic - I'll see if I can get something in for the next build.

Yes, exactly. Thank you Ashley!
Try out r55, released just today. Have a look at the new Z Order actions. Does that help?
Wow, this helps a lot!
Umm... is it just me, or does the Z-ordering not work, at all? 'send to front' and 'send to back' seem to now work.
sqiddster can you post a .capx showing what you mean? Remember those actions only affect the object on its current layer, it won't change its layer.
I think it works but perhaps a couple of my objects are glitched out or something - I will re-import them I guess.
It seems to not work for some of my objects... It just seems to not do anything!
I don't have time to upload a .capx... any ideas as to what could be happening?
Yes, it seems to work for some objects and not others.
Wait... does it only wok for specific instances? aha! that must be the problem.
How do I do it universally for all instances of an object?
I really need a way to Z-order all instances of an object.
Did you use "For each"?
sqiddster, as far as I can tell it works fine. Can you upload a .capx showing it not working?
If you don't know how to upload the capx this is how it's done
Click Save as single file inside Construct2.
Go to mediafire.com and upload it.
Post the link you get.
Even prefer to upload it to DropBox as waiting 30 seconds and add to download a little file is often tedious.
