Closed for Company Meetings: Between September 18 (5pm PDT) and September 22 (12pm PDT), Support and Sales requests will be delayed. Only time-sensitive issues will be addressed during that time. Thanks for your patience.
I thought this was possible with a message but I can't seem to find anything now. Perhaps I'm getting confused between "send backwards" and "add to background". However it does seem that if you add an object to the background and then remove it from the background it ends up behind other foreground objects, so a workaround might be something like the patch below.
