When using a flowchart autolayout, can I assign a weight to a decision branch to influence auto layout placement?

0 votes
I'm making a flowchart which has a decision block with five outcomes. I'd like these setup so that the first branch labeled "1: xxx" is the leftmost outcome, then "2: yyy" is immediately to the right of the first branch, and continuing over the the fifth ("5: aaa") on the far right.  I can't figure out how to set these up so they stay in order when I hit the auto layout to neaten things up.  Is there a way to assign weight so that the order is preserved?

Thank you!

Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to enforce a specific branch order for flowchart layout.
