It appears that users are unable to order widgets within a grid panel so as to set what widget that would like to be in the front. The layer option in the details panel says that it affects draw order, however it does not appear to have affect on the order in which the widgets are drawn.
Expected: Setting the layer option for widgets in a grid panel would move them forward or backward in rendering order
Result: Certain widgets always appear in front of others
