Draw layer tabs screenshot with annotations

I created new Layer tabs in LibreOffice Draw but I can't move it to other position like sheet tabs in Calc
Comment 1 Regina Henschel 2013-10-02 18:19:14 UTC
So it is, and that is no error. The equivalent to the sheet in Calc is not the layer but the slide. Calc has more than one layer for a sheet too, but there exists no UI to show these layers, same in Writer or Impress. Only Draw has a UI to let you manipulate the layers directly.

Nevertheless it is a valid request, to change the UI, to show the layers in an order the user wants. I change the issue type accordingly

Would be nice to integrate the layer into the navigator.

On Hackfest Hamburg, April 2018, we have decided to start a project for improving handling of layers and internal structure. In case you start to work on this issue get in contact with Regina (rb.henschel@t-online.de) or Armin (Armin.Le.Grand@me.com).
