Depending on the diagram, a shape can represent an affinity, a cause, an idea, or an input. When you add a shape, you must determine how it relates to other shapes on the diagram.
When you move affinities, siblings, and children to different shapes, the target shape becomes the parent.
You can change the layout of a brainstorm diagram by changing its type. For example, you can change a fishbone diagram to a mind map, or you can change a mind map to a CT tree. When you change the layout of any brainstorm diagram, Workspace retains the relationships between the levels.
On a CT tree only, you can choose the level at which shapes begin to display vertically.
Use Clockwise and Counter- clockwise buttons to improve the layout of a mind map.
