In QGIS 2.18, I have a symbology of points in a layer based on rules. I want to control the rendering order of the layer in QGIS, with on top the type with the lower counts. enter image description here Intuitively I would expect to observe a rendering order modification by drag-droping the types, but this does not occur. A related question is of no help.

As you can see on the image I have tried using the "control features rendering order" but without success.

How could I do?

Go to Symbol Levels, and there choose the order of rendering. Categories with lower number will be rendered first, and thus will show below categories with higher number.

Where to find Symbol levels

Symbol levels in action

In the above example, drive oui is below drive NULL, and both are below drive non.
