Thanks for the help instructions on Layers Peter, I was able to create a
couple very easily and I like the feature! One thing I noticed though
was it doesn't solve the problem when text is involved. I created a
layer for all the vertical lines on the page. Brought that layer to the
top, and suddenly my text went everywhere! It seems to be that old text
flow bug. ;o)
Of course, you say it is fixed in the latest cvs? Don't worry, I'll be
checking it out! You also mentioned something about transparency? Can
you make a layer somehow transparent, so that on the objects show and
don't upset anything below it?
Patrick, dazed & confused
