Reorder layers in Mask via Layers panel

At the moment if you mask some layers or a group of layers (Mask with shape) you are not able to reorder them. They become locked, not it terms of repositioning them but your are not able to reorder them on the layer level. Right click and "Bring to front" etc. works though.

    can you please fix this asap??? You can't "bring to front" anymore as mentioned above.

    I'm sad this change is not more popular. It's so painful to have to ungroup an mask object and then recreate a mask with Shape… I currently do copy/paster to bring to front but it removes the prototype connections…

    works for symbols, I can drag and drop to reorder layers inside symbol groups. but not inside mask groups.
    doesn't really seem like a feature to me tbh, just sayin

    Are there any updates on this? BTW. this is also the case when I create a symbol … same logic > no layer reorder possibilities other then "bring to front" via right click or the object menu.

    Thanks!
