Is there a way to control what order new nodes are created?

It seems the order of new nodes is a little random. The 2 mapping tools I have used before both started with node 1 in the top right (like Meister) and then went clockwise for the rest of the nodes.

Meister seems to to the first 4 in one order then after than in a different order. Is there a way to control that? I would like to have them created in order, clockwise starting from the same top right position.

Below is the default order.


This is the order I am wanting.

    Hey @Gerald Stowers, I wonder if you're still using the old editor? I'm using the new editor and the order is as shown in the picture:

    I know this isn't the exact order you want but it's definitely much closer. Otherwise, maybe @Miša Hennin or @Andrew Lapidus can advise.
