Clicking Enter ↲ when the parameter-value form is open will close the form without saving your parameters first (the same as clicking ):

Ctrl + Shift + Z or

Ctrl + Shift + Y

Changing the order of objects in a list

Objects are displayed on the map in the following order: placemarks are displayed “higher” than lines and may cover them. Likewise, lines are higher than polygons.

You can change the order in which objects are displayed within every category.

To do this, select the object from the list and use the appropriate keyboard shortcut:

Keyboard shortcuts Moving an object
Ctrl + Shift + ↑ above all objects
Ctrl + Shift + ↓ below all objects
Ctrl + ↑ one object higher
Ctrl + ↑ one object lower

For example, in the drawing on the left, polygon 1 displays above polygon 2, but this order is reversed in the drawing on the right:


You can also drag an object (placemark, line or polygon) to the appropriate position in the object list.
