I'm thinking of building an engine that would take a nested text outline
(delimited by returns and tabs) and create a visual flow chart which would
be text fields connected by vector lines. I know there's a program called
Inspiration that can already do that, but I only need some functionality it
has not all of it. The trickiest part is making sure that no items overlap
one another. If you have any ideas, I would be very thankful.
