Is it possible to change the layer or order a canvas appears in the PD environment?
In graphic software this might be referred to as 'send to back', 'send to front' etc, or the idea of layers.
I want to use different coloured canvases to section off different areas of the patch that do different things, so its easier to see.
I've written most of the patch already, but if I create a new canvas, it appears infront of objects and behind connectors, which is very strange.
I can only get objects to appear ontop of the canvas if I insert them after the canvas has been drawn. This, of course, would mean I would have to re-insert ALL the objects, and theres lots.
I have considered separating different parts of the patch into subpatches, but a) I have a large screen and like to see the big picture and I will be exhibiting the patch in operation so it would be nice for poeple to see the whole thing. Indeed, I have used subpatches for small elements of the overall patch, but not just to organise how it looks.
Apologies if this has been asked before, I searched and couldnt find anything.
