How do I change the order of siblings in family trees?

0 votes
Hello, I'm new here.

I have created my own family tree, but I want to set an order and I don't know how to do it.

I want my aunts and uncles to be ordered from the oldest (on the left) to the youngest (on the right), but when I introduce my cousins (their children) the order that I first set is changed and I can't reorganize them because each time I click "family tree" layout they come back to the order that the program set.

I've been looking for a solution but I couldn't find anything that solve my problem; maybe because I'm not that good at English to understand all the manual.

If anyone could help me, I'd be very thankfull ^^

After more than seven years later: Is there any progress on this feature or at least a workaround? I would appreciate this functionality very much as randomly sorting siblings does not make much sense in a family tree.

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to impose a custom ordering for the members of a family.

It's been 3.5ish years. Are we any closer to having this?
Unfortunately, no.
