How can I change the order of relation and topics?

Sometimes relations run over topics in a map and sometime under topics. How can I adjust the order of appearance on a map (and print). It is possible for background items, but not for topics and relations.

Changing the order of topics along the Z-axis would be great.

If you are talking about relationship lines, how are they formatted? When you insert relationship lines or click on ones that have already been inserted, handles should appear which can be used to move the lines. These are usually in the form of blue dots that when clicked on can be used to drag the relationship lines to adjust their path, where they attach to topics or even to attach them to other topics.

However, exactly how the lines behave when you drag them depends on the line shape they are formatted with. If for example they are formatted as straight lines the only thing you can adjust is their attachment points to the topics, or which topics they are attached to..
