Pop-Up Menu getting hidden behind Layers - HELP! - Macromedia Dynamic HTML

I'm designing with layers instead of tables for the first time. I've just begun inserting vertical Pop-Up Menus as usual as part of my navigation buttons and when I checked it in the browser, I saw that the menu is getting hidden behind the separate layer below the layer that I have my navigation buttons in. Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Is there a way to set the properties to make one layer more prominent than other layers or something along those lines? Why would it be doing this in the first place? Thanks in advance!!...

    Default Pop-Up Menu getting hidden behind Layers - HELP!

    I'm designing with layers instead of tables for the first time. I've just begun
    inserting vertical Pop-Up Menus as usual as part of my navigation buttons and
    when I checked it in the browser, I saw that the menu is getting hidden behind
    the separate layer below the layer that I have my navigation buttons in.

    Can anyone tell me how to fix this? Is there a way to set the properties to
    make one layer more prominent than other layers or something along those lines?
    Why would it be doing this in the first place?

    Thanks in advance!!

    You have to select the layer that has the popup in the Layers control, then select Modify:Arrange:Bring to Front.

    Hope this helps.

    You are on the wrong road here. Check this -

    Here's why you don't want to use layers as a general layout tool -

    And here's why you don't want to use DW's pop-up menus -
