Arranging and hiding map layers

The order in which the layers appear in the legend represents the order in which the map layers are drawn in the map window. The legend stacking order can be changed by selecting and dragging legend items to a new position in the legend. Reordering in the legend affects the visibility of the layers, as point or line coverages are easily hidden by polygon or image layers.

The visibility of layers can be turned on and off by toggling the check box that appears in the legend item.
