being able to easily arrange objects to the back and front
since there is no layers tab, it is crucial to have a feature that allows the user to arrange objects to:
- bring to front
- bring forward
- send backward
- send to back
I'm aware that these are in the menu under Object, but please make them more accessible in the UI, if I have to go into the menu every time to arrange objects it will slow down the user's work flow!
In our June 2016 release, you will be able to use the context menu (right click) to arrange your item. For now, you can use the menu under Object as mentioned, or shortcuts (CMD + ] to Bring Forward, or CMD + [ to send Backward).

here the white filled circle back off the img not come front or forward reason, please ?
Still not working on any other keyboard than English.
For example: our team cant use Assign shortcuts as they wont work on Slovenian QWERTZ keyboards
I like the Sketch way with the forward and backward button.
Some users use different keyboards and not necessarily a us keyboard , it might be cool to plan another way to arrange objects in the work space, maybe by implementing it into the contextual menu?!.

There are keyboard shortcuts that are consistent with pretty much every other graphics product out there. Adding a set of icons to do this just muddies the interface up.
Send backward: Command + [
Send to back: Command + Shift + [
Bring forward: Command + ]
Bring to front: Command + Shift + ]
