Is it possible to change the order of floating topics for using it in the gantt or outline view?

Hi,

I tried to create a Product Flow Chart via the flowchart function of MindManager like this:


This is the gantt view:



But when I add a task between task 2.1 and 2.3. (because I have forgotten it) the new task stands at the bottom of the task list in the gantt chart.

It's the same in the outline view.

Is it possible to change the order of the floating topics?

That's a pretty interesting point! Since the floating topics exist outside of the normal map structure I don't think there is a way to change their order other than modifying the contents of the file manually...

Thats what I feared.

What do you mean when you say "modifying the contents of the file manually"?
I have not really figured out when a change to a topic will lead to a change in order.

It's a bit technical, but you could save your map as an XML file and then modify the order of the topics directly in the XML. Also, if you want I can give it a try :)
