How do I bring an object one step forward in Adobe Illustrator?


Question

enter image description here

I want to bring the circle forward only one step, so it ends up between the green shapes. Please refer to the image if it's unclear what I want to achieve.

  1. Choose object
  2. Hit alt shift cmd + R (At least on a mac).

And ctrl + ] or [ on Windows

Depending on your system, use these steps however many times you need to reach your desired effect.

I have CS5 for Mac and it is Command+] to bring forward (Command+[ to send backwards). You can find the menu item under Object > Arrange.

Alternatively, give each element a meaningful name in the Layers palette, select the layer and drag it to the desired position.
