Has an IDML Object an z index? To identify exactly the Object position / arrangement on a layer?

Mar 9, 2012 6:22 AM



let me tell you about my problem.

I'm programming a converter from IDML to a special internal XML format.


For example I have one Layer with three objekts.


- On the bottom of the layer I've got a rectangle.          (z-index: 3)

- Above this rectangle, there is a text object.               (z-index: 2)

- And on top a line.                                                    (z-index: 1)


I've to take over these objects into my internal XML. And it's very important to maintain the order of the objects.

Is there any attribute in the IDML XML structure like a (html) z-index, which defines the object arrangement?


Thanks for your help! :-)
