Is it possible to bypass the automated thought layout and create your own. For example child thoughts automatically group under my parent thought in structured fashion, but what if i want some child thoughts on the far left of my plex, or on the far right, permanently! Is this possible. If not can you implement it.
This has been discussed many times here. I suggest you use the forum search engine a bit more. Search for it under terms such as custom ordering, manual arrangement, etc.

It's remarkable how many newcomers to this forum seize upon this shortcoming as their first major annoyance with PB. I know I did, about a year ago. It was one of the first things that puzzled me. I couldn't believe PB didn't provide a function as basic as this, and naturally assumed I had overlooked the fine print somewhere that would explain how to do it. Now I know better.

Well, I've ceased to worry about it, now that I've got my Number and Replace script to do it all for me, at least until maybe one day the developers find a way to build something like this into the program. I'm all right, Jack, though I wish I knew enough about other OS to provide similar workarounds for Mac and Linux users.

Here are a couple of forum threads about this situation. There are plenty more.
