Create an Ishikawa (fishbone)-diagram?

asked Jul 29, 2019 in Wanted features by Stefan


with mind-map and WBS structure in place it seems to be not too far to allow the creation of a cause-effect-diagram. It would be really cool to be able to generate this from a header-structure and put it in the typical appearance. It may be already posible with exisiting structures, But it would be great if there would be a Template like mindmap or WBS which automatically arranges the branches in an alternating order for the major headlines and thereafter alternating in horizontal and diagonal order per sub/sub-sub

Like this:

* PROBLEM ;Head of the fish

** Man ;pointing upwards

** Machine ;pointing downwards

** Materials ;pointing upwards

*** first item ;horizontally

*** second item  ;horizontally

**** first sub item; vertically

***** first sub-sub ;horizontaly.
