When you insert raster
images, the images draw in the order in which you insert them. You
can change the draw order of:
- Raster images.
- Raster images and vector objects.
You can change the
draw order of images and vector objects. By sending an image to
the back, the vector objects display on top of the image. Move your
cursor over the image to see the results.
you change the draw order and then undo the change, images may not
appear in the correct draw order. Use the REGEN command to display
the correct draw order of the images.
The following conditions
affect the image draw order:
- Image insertion order
AutoCAD Map 3D uses image insertion order first.
For example, if you insert images A, B, C in that order, and then
reorder them so that they are arranged as B, C, A, use REGEN when
you open that drawing again to restore the order to B, C, A.
AutoCAD Map 3D always uses this optimization feature
and applies it to the draw order of all objects, not just to images.
- Image selection
You can set an option to draw hatch marks over
a selected image. Click Options.
Select the Display tab. Under Display
Performance, set Highlight Raster Image
Frame Only to off.
If Highlight Raster Image
Frame Only is off, when you select an image, it rises
to the top of the display order, obscuring any vectors that cross
it. Use the REGEN command to restore the proper display order.
