Reordering elements

I have a CNC machine.  I have used TC over the years and came up with learning project.  Save drawing to DXF, then DXF to G-code.  Did the drawing, TC made it relatively easy. DXF on problem, G-Code agin no problem.  But the I really did think about what I was doing as drew the part, what with all the deletes, re-try inserts, etc.  Anyway, the tool path on a blind conversion of my hap hazard drafting was miserable. 

Once drawn, is there an easy way to reorder the drawing elements.  Like dragging an element in the Selection Info tree.
I don't recall seeing it in the past, and could not find it with search.

I dont think that is available in the CAD program. But you should be able to do this with your CAM software. I know this can be done with the CAM plug-in.

Thanks Ken.  Didn't think so; but its a shame it's such a easy feature to add to info tree.  But then again, since their widgets aren't draggable it could be a pain.

What CAM software are you using? What type of machine? Just curious.
