Is there a workaround for arguments with sharing?

I understand that Rationale depends on most arguments being tree-shaped, in order to do layout quickly and attractively.

However, in reality once a statement is established, it is entirely possible to use it more than once - that is, there are arguments that are directed acyclic graphs, but not trees.

Is there a standard way to work around the tree default?

One way to work around the tree default is simply to use copy and paste to duplicate nodes, even entire subtrees.

Hi @Johnicholas,

In Rationale you construct an argument- or reconstruct an argument out of a given text - in a pyramidal form. Each reason is - in the eye of the reason giver - a piece of evidence in support of the claim immediately above it, and only for that claim. There is no workaround here in such a way that you can visually connect one and the same claim to two or more claims in different branches. A solution is, indeed, by copy&paste the claim.

Hi, Can somebody tell me how to create a folder? I have a lot of files and can't organize them in folders. I appreciate your help. A

In your My maps: type a name for a folder in the box: 'add folder' above at the right at give an Enter.

Btw: please start a new thread when you have a message that is not related to an existing thread.
