Hey Klaus for some reason it says file not found. I have the bitmaps under C:\mach3\bitmaps. It's in a folder labeled for that screen set.
But MachScreen can't find it for some reason.

Hi,

have you set an user defined Image path (Menu ->Options ->Settings)?

If I recall correctly, trying to layer bitmaps in Mach3 is problematic at best.
I've found the best course of action is to use a single background image, with transparent buttons over the top of it. I include my DRO boxes and buttons on the background  image.

Hello,

since this problem seems to appear more often I will show a way which should solves this problem.
 - Make sure you have "Multiple selection" selected (The second Icon from the right in the toolbar shows "M"). You can toggle it by clicking on the Icon.
 - left mouse click on the place where you want to change the layer.
 - MachScreen will show all control elements from there, independent  whether visible or covered. When you hover with the mouse over the element names, the selected element is shown with a colored frame to help identify the control. You can change the layer order by dragging and dropping the image.  To do so, click the bitmap to move, hold down the left mouse button and drag it to the required place. Save your screen set and reload the changed screenset in Mach3.  see attachment
