I'm confused, when I drag a layer to form a group the levels are positioned differently (I add the image otherwise I'll explain myself wrongly).


Sometimes it seems that nothing changes, sometimes if I use a form, yes.
Surely there is the logical explanation, would you be so kind to explain to me too so that you understand difference and use well?

Thanks so much...
