Does anyone know whether it's possible to create a hierarchy for the map layers? When I add data to a filled map, it becomes very difficult to read the place names. I've played with the transparency settings but that doesn't do the trick. MapInfo and other mapping tools allow you to bring different layers to front so you can account for this problem. If feature is not available, any thougths on alternative solutions?
Since the background map is essentially just a background image, there is currently is no way to pull that layer to the front. One option is to place the desired field on the Label shelf.
This is also a common request, you may want to put in under Ideas in the Community section!
