Descendant Chart Sort Order

Classification: Query
Is it possible to specify the order in which boxes on a descendant chart are arranged?

Specifically, if a person has two or more spouses, I prefer the box for the first spouse to come first (when reading left to right)followed by the box for the second spouse. That way, children of the two spouses are arranged left to right in the order of their birth.

FTM 2009 by default arranges the boxes so the last spouse comes first (when reading left to right) followed by the earlier spouse, etc. So, when I go down to the next generation to view their children, the children of the latest spouse who were born after the children of the earlier spouse are listed first.

I've looked through the Help file and this topic doesn't seem to be discussed.

Thanks for any help.
