Sequential position in the overall document hierarchy (read-only).

It can be used by agents to judge the position of a note within the document. Note that some items not displayed in the Outline view, such as adornments, are still included in the $OutlineOrder. This should be borne in mind if doing calculations based on comparing sibling $OutlineOrder values as the 'next' item may not be a note (and there's no way to test this fact).

The order of notes within the current container is shown by $SiblingOrder.

The lowest number is drawn at the front in a map. If notes with outline orders #1 and #5 overlap, part of #5 will be behind the icon for #1.

The note menu command to move a note forward/backward or all the way to the back/front will alter both $OutlineOrder and $SiblingOrder for the affected note(s).

Aliases do not inherit this property from their original but have their own value.
