# What is the way to move a material above another?

When I create a new material it is listed last and I don't know how to move it.

I'm trying to render a material together with a "Wire" material and I think that the way that works is when the "Wire" material is on top of other materials and then assign the other materials. In that way on the render the other materials will be on the object together with the "Wire" material Here is an example from blendswap -

• I don't think you can. Why do you want to? AFAIK the order of the list doesn't have any effect on the render. – gandalf3 Aug 18 '14 at 21:14

• I thought of that too, but when you have the "Wire" material first, then when the other material is assigned, in the render the "Wire" material will be shown together with it. Pretty cool. – Vladimir Aug 18 '14 at 21:41

• @Vladimir Yes. Pressing the - button only deletes the material slot. The material will stay around until the blend file is closed, and even then will only be deleted if no objects are using it. Materials with no users (no objects using them) have a little 0 before them in the selector drop down. – gandalf3 Aug 18 '14 at 22:21
