Construction[edit]

Orientation[edit]

The regular flow chart has one or more starting point and one or more endings. This chart is mostly vertically orientated from top to bottom. Some charts flow horizontal from left to right. And on other group of flow charts are vertically orientated but have ending both on the bottom and horizontal on one or both sides.

Vertical[edit]

Diagrams from top to bottom.

Horizontal[edit]

Diagrams from left to right.

Vertical and horizontal[edit]

Diagrams starting for example on top, and ending on the bottom and left or right.
