3. Make the green rectangle overlap the red one and vice versa

There is no option to move up/down an element in the layer stack.

What do you have tried? On Windows it would be:
 menu Format > Arrange,
 or toolbar Drawing > Icon 'Object Position',
 or context menu > Arrange,
 or shortcuts Ctrl Shift + and Ctrl + and Ctrl - and Ctrl Shift -.

Implementd/fixed. I testes with 4.1.66 and I can now move elements down/up in the layer stack.

I think this issue can be closed.

Thanks a lot to the Collabora team and especially Tomaž for implementing this feature!
