I checked with NT support and they said there is not a way to do this.

There should be a way to do this but I've not found the solution.

The Z-order of indicators can be changed with the scroll wheel on a mouse.

For people that have a mouse that is great. But with a laptop it is not that easy.

I would like to be able to control the z-order (on top/on bottom etc) of my indicators with code.

Does anyone know of a way to change this?

Currently, there is no way to do this that I know of. It is all internal to NT.

I too have asked that they add another keystroke or menu item to change this. Have not heard anything back.

For a long time now there has been keyword "ZOrder = x" you can put in #init, this seems to be what you are asking for, yes?
