When you have nonoverlapping layers in a document, the Move Up One Layer and Move Down One Layer commands may move the selected layer past multiple layers. This is because nonoverlapping layers are considered to be at the same level. The Move Up One Layer and Move Down One Layer commands move the selected layer (or layers) above or below the next level. To move a layer to a position between nonoverlapping layers, drag it on the Layers palette.
You can also reposition a layer by dragging it to a new position on the Layers palette, by clicking the Move to Bottom 0 , Move to Top ■-, Move Down One Layer , or Move Up One Layer i buttons on the property bar.
