The usually reason for this is that an item is being brought to the front or back of the layer it is on, and the item you want to bring it to the front or back of is on a different layer.

Hi there,

 

Sorry about the trouble. Could you please share a few more details like:

  • OS and version of Illustrator
  • Is the issue related to a specific document?
  • Are you able to replicate this issue on a new document?
  • Please share this document with us? You can upload it to the Creative Cloud (https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/share.html) and share the download link here or via DM. We will have a look at it.
  • Are there any recent changes made to your system? For example, any antivirus, system updates, plugins, or web extensions installed recently.
  • Does resetting Illustrator Preferences ( https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html) help to resolve the issue?
    Disclaimer: Please note that resetting preferences will remove all the custom settings, and Illustrator will launch with default settings. You can also take a backup of the folders in case you want to. Location is mentioned in the article.

 

Will be looking forward to your response.

 

Thanks & Regards,

Anshul Saini

Meaning that the shortcut is not working?

The context menu is not working?

 

Or is it not working at all?

 

You are sure that it's not that there are multiple layers or transparency blend modes causing it?

Hello @Shayan Ali,

We understand that encountering technical issues can be frustrating. Would you mind sharing some more details, like the exact version of the OS/Illustrator, details about your exact workflow, whether Illustrator behaves this way with all files, and a screen recording of the problem (https://adobe.ly/3PSmT8f), as suggested by Monika, so we can investigate this further?

Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Thanks,

Anubhav
