How to construct a logo using objects
Just like all the current popular graphical image editing software, EximiousSoft Logo Designer supports ayer editing strongly. In Logo Designer, usually a layer expressed as an object. Any final amazing Logo is composed of many relatively simple object composition splicing. To enable users convenient for Logo Design, Logo Designer provides a number of methods for object management, organization and transformation.
Z-Order is to move elements in the z-axis , what that means is that you can move an object to the front or to the back of another objects. Think of a pile of books, placed vertically, the 1st one at the bottom, the 2nd one on top the 1st one, the 3rd one on top of the 2nd one and so on. Now you want to move, say, the 8th book below the 7th book. So you need to change the Z-Order. In EximiousSoft Logo Designer, the objects are placed in the same way and each object has a unique z-index in the stacking order. You can change the stacking level of any element, as you can do to the pile of books. The commands Move to Front/Back/One Step Front/One Step Back help you change the stacking order, as described below.
