When I place an object in floor plan view, it appears on top of another object that I don't want it to, or does not display above the object that I need it to. How can I correct this?
Click the Move to Front of Group edit button to move the selected object(s) so that it displays in front of other objects in the same drawing group. Move to Front of Group functions like the checkbox of the same name in the object's specification dialog.
Move to Front of Group is useful for creating a sense of depth or to improve a drawing's clarity. For example, you can move a solid circle representing rebar to the front of a foundation wall with a concrete fill pattern in a cross section so that the rebar is not masked by the wall's fill pattern.
You can use this same process to select and adjust the order of other objects, such as if you have a furniture item that is incorrectly covered by a rug in floor plan view.
Each object in a plan file belongs to one of three drawing groups, which influences whether it displays in front of or behind other objects.
With the exception of imported pictures, when an object is first created, it is placed in the Default Group. Objects in this group display in front of or behind one another according to program-defined rules that cannot be modified.
Once a CAD or CAD-based object is created, though, you can control how it displays relative to other objects using its specification dialog.
You can use 'Move to Front of Group' to display the object in front of other objects in its drawing group, but not necessarily in front of objects in other groups.
