        Reply to:   RE>Ordering of graphics primit
Ken Levasseur observes ...

...there was a distinct difference in the outputs from

> pt=Map[Point[{#,#^2}]&,Table[Random[],{20}]];
> ax=Line[{{1,0},{0,0},{0,1}}];
> nm=Text["y = x^2",{0.2,0.9}];
> {pt,ax,nm}//Graphics//Show
> {nm,pt,ax}//Graphics//Show

In the latter output, all points in pt are connected to pt[[1]].


I observed this same effect, using a Mac IIci Front-End to a DEC-RISC

The correct behaviour results from the following


Somehow the  Text[] command ( in the expansion of  nm ) is having an
undesirable side-effect when the Graphics primitives are not all at the same
level in Graphics[] .
