I would have to enable/disable specific grouped/layered "figures".
Actually, the same functionality draw2d already provides.

Does graphiti support layering of "figures"?

What exactlly do you mean with "layering"?

Graphiti supports defining which shapes are drawn on top of others. This is
determined by the z-order defined with the ordering in the children
relation: children are drawn first come first serve (so the last child
appears on top).

Say, you have a layer/group of figures/pictograms of type A and another layer of type B. I want to be able to tell graphiti to hide layer A or layer B to not draw/render it.
Or, maybe, to tell it to draw layer B before layer A...

The z order (inside a layer) is default behavior in most visualizations...

So, it's about grouping shapes in a diagram (the group itself is not
visualized) and doing some common modification to it?

Currently there's no such functionality in Graphiti, but that sounds like a
good enhancement. Would you file a Bugzilla for this?
