In addition, you can also use layers to re-arrange elements on your design. Here’s how:

1. Open the Layers tab in the sidebar. This will display all the layers and groups that make up your document. Here, you can toggle layers on / off.  For more information on how to do this, click here

2. Select the element you wish to re-arrange by clicking on it. You will notice that this will highlight the layer’s associated element on the canvas.

3. Simply click and drag the layer you have selected to re-arrange it’s position. Notice how the donut image is now underneath the text.
