This has absolutely no effect on the canvas.
Doesn't affect the order in 5.0.2 or earlier, however this does work in the current 5.1 beta releases.

I have 5.0.2 Pro. Wow, really looking forward to this. I suppose I may have to get a mindmapping app like MindManager 7 for the Mac, but I'm not sure if they support this. Ultimately, I'd like to get sort as well.

Turn on "Automatic Layout"
