Arrange button (Move objects to front or back)

Post by guyver93 » Mon Oct 20, 2014 5:16 pm

I was working in illustrator and was moving a lot of assets on my canvas to the front or back within a particular layer and had an idea about layer stacking and object ordering. Would it be possible to make a button where you can re arrange the stacking order of an object by just left clicking and dragging left to right or using a slider? This function is actually in a little app program I have on my iPad called iDraw. When working with hundreds of pieces of artwork it would be extremely helpful. Im actually really surprised that this function isn't in every single graphics program. Even page layout programs like MSword or InDesign would benefit greatly from a tool like this. Thoughts?
