Arrange objects (Send backward / Bring Forward)

I'd like to be able to right click an object on the timeline and "Arrange>Send backward", like you can do on the canvas

It would also be great to have a keyboard shortcut to perform this action

This would be nice. Wasn't sure if it was something that I had not discovered yet.

Good idea, but then you'd have to be able to see more tracks than we do currently. - send backeards or forwards would still have to be moving to higher or lower track.

I just discovered that there is a menu item that does this. (Edit > Arrange) which at least means that once the object is selected, it doesn't become a problem once other objects are in front of it and blocking it if you are right clicking the object on the canvas.

Can the developers simply allocate Hotkeys/shortcuts to Bring forward/Send backward. That would speed things up substantially

Thank you Craig! It helped me. Now you can move an element back or forward by right clicking on the element and then "Order" and then Bring forward or Bring back. Snagit is a very cool thing!
