How can I define the drawing order of features within one layer? Test parcels need to be checked periodically. If there is a change in the kind of landuse (eg. from crop to greenland), the feature needs to be copied and filled in with the new attributes. So at the end I have like in my examples three parcels that have an identical geometry. How can I make sure, that the latest one is drawn on top?

Thanks for any help

If new features are added to the file, I would suspect that the last geometry added would be on top of the first geometry added.  I think that you want the last added record to 'appear' at the top of the list in your table even though the geometry is on top already.  Your 'bottom' is in reality the 'top'.  I suspect you figured that out because you seem to have sorted in descending order on the OBJECTID field once you selected the overlapping geometry
