Drawing order

When drawing something in 2D using different colors and one line is on top of another is there a way to specify which color you want on top. I am drawing something and I have the outline drawn, I hatch the inside and change it's color to light gray it covers over the outline color. I want the outline to stay the prominent color.

Under the Format drop-down menu, you can adjust the 'stacking' of objects.

Any object can be sent to the Back or Front or Forward One or Backward One.

If that doesn't work, there are other things to do, but try this first.

Explode the hatched object one time to separate it into the outline object and the hatch. Then you can select one or the other and apply Jeff's suggestions.

Another method to consider, select hatch and in Pen Properties set pen  to 'Invisible'. Hatch the inside and the border color will still prominent.

There's so much to learn and not much time left to learn it.

Thanks guys those all worked, It shows that there is always something to learn with this program no matter how long you have it. I have been doing this since version 10 and I am always finding something new.
