Arranging shared layers on multiple canvases Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes

I have a many multiple page documents that I would like to add a shared footer to. I select all the canvases, right click and add a shared layer. Omnigraffle then adds the shared layer to all the canvases beneath the initial canvas layer. This causes the new shared layer to be obscured by the original layer. The only work around I have is to manually move the shared layer back on top for each canvas. This activity is more trouble then it is worth for the volume of documents I need to work with. Does anyone know of a way to create multiple shared layers on top of the existing layers, or use applescript to rearrange the order of layers?

What I find frustrating about this feature is when you add a shared layer to a single canvas, the layer is added on top of the existing layer, but when you add a shared layer to multiple canvases, it is on the bottom.

Thanks for any help you can provide in advance.
I must confess that my OmniGraffle-Fu is insufficient for this one, but if you send email to the support ninjas, you're guaranteed an answer from someone more knowledgeable.
