The Effects dialog
The Effects dialog allows you to add or remove effects for objects, layers and layouts. It can be opened from the Properties Bar when the properties for an object supporting effects, a layer, or a layout are showing.
Effects can be added with the toolbar at the top or by right-clicking and selecting Add effect. This opens the Add Effect dialog. The toolbar and right-click menu also allow you to rename (F2) or delete (Del) effects.
Effects can be reordered by using the Up and Down buttons on the toolbar, or by dragging and dropping them. The order of effects is important since it defines the order in which the effects are processed, which can alter the visual result. For more information, see the manual section on Effects.
