[Ipe-discuss] [***SPAM***] How to bring objects to the front after filling a closed path?

If I draw a circle, then write some text or draw some shape
inside the circle, then later I decide I want to add a
filling color to the inside of the circle, say light gray.

What happens is that every thing inside the circle now
becomes not visible since they are under the filling
color. I can change the opacity of the filling color,
but this is not what I want.

Only way to fix this is to draw things AFTER I add the filling
the color. Now they will show on top of the filling color OK.

Is there a way to tell IPE to bring those objects that are
below the now filled circle to the top of the filling so
they show?

In Visio there are such commands.


But I do not know how to do it in IPE.

Using 7.2.7 on windows 10.

Thanks for any hints
