Get a sketch picture to show up "in front of" hatch/drawing view

Hi guys,


First of all, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Jackie and I've been a SolidWorks user for about 2-3 years.


I am trying to import a sketch picture where the drawing view and sheet format are wrapped behind the sketch picture. In fact, I wanted to have a drawing view with a hatch on a surface but the sketch picture would remain "in front of" it, similar to the Microsoft Word function of wrapping pictures in front of the text.


The only problem is that, of course, the picture always remains behind the drawing view and the hatch. My only theory is that If you go into Options ---> Drawings, there is a setting to Display Sketch Hatch Behind Geometry, but it doesn't work when I print off the drawing.


I have attached a screenshot of what it looks like. As you can see, the hatch is clearly in front of the picture, but I am trying to get it behind.
