Sort the outline and map in the same order

I use a lot an adornment with a big grid where I position my notes. it’s a kind of post-it wall:

There is a way to have the notes sorted in the same order in outline view? From right to left, one row after the order. I know I can create an adornment for each row and then use Xpos. But it’s so nice to have this big adornment! I can move all my notes in an easy way.

Any ideas?

See Outline vs. Map Interface. The outline order ($OutlineOrder) is affected by the map’s Z-order (stacking order). The X/Y positioning on the map has no effect on outline order. So, you want to arrange things so that the map z-order reflects your desired outline order.

Thanks, Mark!
