Drawing Order

Drawing Order

Use this drop-down list to specify the drawing order of the layers. Options include:

  • Draw Composite
    Force display of data in both layers even if one or more layers have a background color.
  • Draw Layer by Layer
    Suppose that there are m layers in the graph. Then for n=1, 2, ..., m. Layer n+1 is drawn after layer n is completely drawn, including the background of layer n. If you specify a background color for layer n+1, then the background of this layer will mask elements of layer n. If you leave the background as None then the data in layer n will be visible in layer n+1.

There are three radio boxes (ColorBorder DimensionsScale Elements)here. You can check one of them to set the Display tab.

  • Scale with Layer Frame
    Scale the layer elements proportionally with the layer.
  • Fixed Factor
    Determine the size of the layer elements relative to their original size (font size, symbol size, and line width, etc.). The size of these elements is determined by multiplying their original size by the scale factor specified in the Fixed Factor edit box.
