Handling objects

Enter ↲

completes the process of drawing the map object and opens the form that lets you assign parameter values to it (you can alternately do this by selecting Finish from the context menu or double-clicking on the object while creating it).

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

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 shortcutsMoving an object
Ctrl + Shift + ↑ above all objects
Ctrl + Shift + ↓ below all objects
Ctrl + ↑ one object higher
Ctrl + ↑ one object lower

Keyboard shortcutsMoving an object
Cmd ⌘ + Shift + ↑ above all objects
Cmd ⌘ + Shift + ↓ below all objects
Cmd ⌘ + ↑ one object higher
Cmd ⌘ + ↓

one object lower

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

Note. 

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