Overlay rendering/display order question

I have a texture mapped nautical chart with a number of overlays, one being "generated contours" and another being a shape file from an ArcGIS project (displayed with transparency - thanks).

The problem I've got is trying to then overlay a 3D path profile BMP on top of the whole project - the overlay is shown at the bottom of the "Overlay Control Center" list, just above "User Created Features" actually, but it renders beneath the contours and shape files. Is this a bug or is there some other mechanism that I should be using to load stuff on top of these lines and filled polygons?

PS: lovely product overall.

    By default, all vector data is drawn on top of all raster data regardless of order in the Control Center. You can change this by going to the Vector Display tab of the Configuration dialog and changing the 'Vector Draw Order' option.

    Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
