Is it possible to make a bubble diagram within a bubble diagram? If not, is it possible with the constellation diagram?

    Welcome to TeX.SE! A bubble diagram is AFAIK not a unique object. Please provide us with some information (like a sketch) of what you are looking for. Or are you looking for a mindmap? – user121799 Feb 6 '19 at 5:53
  • Welcome to TeX.SE! From the smartdiagram tag I guessed that you use this package and I copied the bubble diagram example from the package manual as a starting point for my answer. Next time you ask a question, it would be helpful if you provide such an example yourself as part of your question text (could be an example from a manual or one that you write yourself, as long as it is small and self-contained). That would eliminate the guessing and would allow answerers to reproduce and address the issue immediately without needing to do preparation [...] – Marijn Feb 7 '19 at 15:52

It is possible - I've tried it :)

In the example below I used a \resizebox to make the nested diagram smaller, and I added a \Huge font switch within the nested diagram to make the text a bit more readable. Also I increased the distance between the bubbles a bit to avoid overlap.


\smartdiagramset{distance center/other bubbles=1.5cm}
\smartdiagram[bubble diagram]{
Build a program,Set up,Run,{\resizebox{3cm}{!}{\Huge \smartdiagram[bubble diagram]{%
