Making object to appear to front on same layer.

Recommended Posts

Was the object on another layer before? If yes, put it on the layer on top and merge it down.

If not, you can't. There is no information about the parts of the object that are behind something else. You would have to reconstruct them yourself.

But why do you need several objects on the same layer in the first place?

Welcome to the Affinity forums, @gj14404.

Which Affinity application (Photo, Designer) are you using?

For Designer: each object is generally its own layer, and you can simply move the layer for object A above that for object B by dragging it in the Layers panel.
