add or delete lines.

version of RFFlow.

easier to modify an existing chart than to draw it from scratch. The free
trial is fully functional for 30 days.
After opening the above chart in RFFlow, follow these steps:
- Click the word "Text" in the stencil and type in the name of a
team. You may want to add
the team's ranking and win-loss statistics, like (23-10). You can format
the text just as you do in your word processor using bold, italic, colors,
etc. Then drag the text over the line.
- If you need more lines, right-click on a line
and choose Duplicate. To change the length of a line, left-click on
the line and drag the handles.
- To delete a line or text, right-click on it and choose Delete. If
you draw a selection rectangle around several objects, you can duplicate or delete
them all at once.
- Drag objects to move them.
If you want to draw your chart from scratch, you should add the Tournament
Charts stencil. Click on the More Shapes
button and scroll to Tournament Charts
. The stencils are in
alphabetical order. Then click the Add Stencil
button. You can click
on a shape and type in the name of the team. Then drag the shape to move it on
your chart. After placing your shapes, you can click on a line in the stencil
and draw lines between the shapes. If your chart becomes too large, you can
size it to fit on one page by clicking on Tools
, and the Fit Chart on Page
To edit the text in a shape, double-click the shape.
You can right-click a shape in a stencil and set the size in the Shape tab.
Then every time you use that shape, it will be that fixed size.
