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?
