German term or phrase: nachgeordnete Auswahl
KONTEXT: ,,Im erstgenannten Fall erscheinen in der Multifunktionsleiste die Zeichentools oder die Bildtools
mit ihrer Registerkarte Format und der Gruppe Anordnen, in der die Befehle In den
Vordergrund bzw. In den Hintergrund zur Verfügung stehen. Im zweitgenannten Fall finden Sie die gerade genannten Befehle im Kontextmenü. In beiden Fällen haben Sie die nachgeordnete Auswahl, die Position um eine Ebene zu verschieben oder aber das Objekt ganz in den Hintergrund beziehungsweise ganz in den Vordergrund zu stellen.''

With "nachgeordnete Auswahl", I think the author means a "minor choice" or perhaps "alternative option" but I can't seem to find a suitable translation for "nachgeordnete" in this particular context. Any suggestions would be welcome.
