We want to create a scheme and it should be:

  • horizontal
  • multi-level
  • easily editable
  • it must be the connecting line (but no cross-links)
  • grouping of nodes (the block may contain more than 10 lines )
  • optimally to fill the page
  • contains hyperlinks

Our attempts:

Drawing in LaTex - This case is very difficult to use, especially if diagram will change ( for example add a block in middle)

Create a diagram - All diagrams that we've tried, to be not compact

Create a list (enumeration) - There is no possibility to see scheme as a whole, no connecting lines, level of list is limited.

Questions:

  1. What can you advise solution to our problem?
  2. What solution is best to use?
  3. There are other ways to solve problem?

Example of a schema:
