Layers for keeping items in front

I would love to see layers so we can keep foreground items in the front. Every time I add an item to a page it moves to the front and I have to check by previewing. On a layer would guarantee its position. Thanks!


ooooooooh. Like a graphics/video editing program. That would be insane. Can it be done? A challenge for the Sparkle Geniuses I feel has been thrown out. Or did I miss the entire topic of the post?

I would really love an Inspector tab that reveals a layers panel.

Thinking of the Adobe layers panel as a model. Each object and group of objects would be represented in their current stacking order, and a Lock and Eyeball icon next to each layer item would indicate whether that object / group is visible or locked on the currently showing device layout.
