I am using ArcGIS Pro.

I have a feature class with many overlapping polygons. I am changing the transparency of each of the symbols individually so that you can see through each polygon to the underlying features, much like it would appear if they were 2 different feature classes.

How do I make the underlying polygon appear on top of, instead of underneath, the larger polygon?

Screenshot example embedded below.

In the "Primary Symbology" pane, select the "Symbol Layer Drawing button"(at the top of the pane, looks kind of like a #). There, you click the switch to enable and you can change the order your symbology draws in.
