I have started to create my family tree. I have noticed that children are not shown in the tree in the order they were born in. Eg, my father, the youngest son, is shown first on the tree rather than tenth.
Is there a way to tell the program to automatically place all siblings in age order according to DOB? I have searched in the manual, but I cannot find an answer.

Many thanks

Are the children in order on the family card? If not you should sort them (you can also sort all families at the same time (the topic to look for in the manual is "Sorting Children in All Families").

To elaborate on the answer Dennis gave, to sort the children in a family, just click on the Children button in the Family View and select Sort from the menu. This works if there's birthdates for everyone. If some birthdates are missing, you can click and drag the children around to the proper order, either as buttons or in the list format.
