Rearrange layers

The layers on your artboard lay over each other and you can change the order by bringing layers back- or forward easily.

Rearrange layers

Any element that you use in your artboard is called a layer. There are different layer types like a text, video, image, or stickers. Here is how you can rearrange them:

By default the order of the layers is chronologic which means the most recent layer you add is the one on the top. If you want to change the order of layers, you have to click onto the icon in the bottom left corner. The layer at the top of the list is the one in front of all the other layers. By dragging the layers around the list you can rearrange their order. That way you can control your layer arrangement on every artboard.

💡Tip: The other option to rearrange a layer is by right-clicking on a layer - have a look at the image below to see your options

With these two ways your are able to arrange all layers as you like to create unique Story designs.

💡Tip: Once the list of layers is opened, it remains open until the component is clicked again
