Embedded View behind button preventing click


I have a button and an embedded coordinate view both inside a coordinate view as part of a symbol in Perspective. The embedded view is a reusable alarm border and is sent to the back. See screenshot:

The problem is even though the embedded view is behind the button, I can no longer click on the button. If I move the embedded view to the side, everything works.

Is this a bug?


I believe you’re incorrect in claiming that the Embedded View has been sent to the “back”. Due to the design of a View, the way to interpret z-indexing of a Container’s children is the “last” (or bottom) child is on the relative “top” of anything before it.

Try selecting your Button node, and clicking the toolbar icons which modify the z-index:

That fixed it. I mistakenly assumed the order.
