Sudden/unexpected change in layer level

Post by jgold723 » 07 May 2019, 09:03

This an odd bit of Quark behavior that I have experienced over the years in multiple versions. I don't know if it's a bug, or perhaps a setting that I have mistakenly enabled. Maybe someone here knows.

Here's what happens:

1) In my document, I draw a text box;
2) I then place an image on top of that text box;
3) I then flow text into that text box.

Upon doing #3, the text box rises to the top level/layer and hides the photo.

Some more information:

1) Although I refer to "layers" here, I'm not actually using the layers control panel;
2) It doesn't happen all the time... in fact it's very sporadic

As I mentioned, this has been happening for years... at least as far back as QX9.

Any ideas as to what might be happening?
