In QGIS 1.9 (051fe31), the layers are out of order. I've attached both a screen print showing the bottom layer on top in the final rendering. I also attached the .qgs file.

Note that the .qgs file is from 1.8.0 final release, and I got that dialog warning me that it will be converted to 1.9's format.

legend updates:
- when enabling explicit drawing order, intially take legend order
- when loading projects with explicit drawing order enabled,
verify that the order is actually fully set and take legend
order otherwise (fixes #7623)
- store/restore active layer

please check the "layer order" panel.

#2 Updated by Aren Cambre about 11 years ago

The order in the Layer order panel is the exact opposite of the order in the Layer panel. It's as if that got reversed upon import.

#3 Updated by Andreas Neumann about 11 years ago

  • Priority changed from Normal to Severe/Regression

I think this should be a blocker. But it is still unassigned. We should find a developer who can fix it.

#4 Updated by Sandro Santilli about 11 years ago

  • Operating System changed from Windows to Windows, Linux
  • OS version changed from 7 x64 to Windows7 x64, Ubuntu 12.04 x64

More info:

Right-click menu shows "Update drawing order" is unchecked,
if I check it things work as they used to (top layer is rendered on top);
unchecking it again that order is swapped.

Activating the layer ordering panel indeed shows that items in
that panel are always following changes in the layer panel, so
to be always in the reverse order of the latter. Funny :)
