Add Storing of z- Order to yEd

+3 votes


Please have yEd store the z-order (Raise / Lower Selection) when files are saved and re-loaded. 

See http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/2176/edit-lower-layer-not-preserved-in-save-file and http://yed.yworks.com/support/qa/1118/yed-keeps-forgetting-z-order for examples of users who would like this feature.

yEd is a great editor. It makes drawing diagrams and topologies so easy, but please, please add this feature (storing z-Order), which will make other tools obsolete. Isn't this "just" about adding a new attribute which will then be used to restore the correct order? Somehow the program has to keep track of the element order while I'm editing the document, before saving and losing this information.
