Racing Lanes For Green Logic Diagram

For robust logic diagrams on the green workspace, it would be nice to be able to add racing lanes with the option of placing them either vertical or horizontal.

Racing lanes would allow grouping related logic blocks and connectors in order to improve readability.

    MS Visio calls them ‘Swim Lanes’. Take a look here..

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swim_lane

    They can have a border which is labeled and run vertical or horizontal.

    Also, the lanes could be used to keep track of separate functional algos. Might use different lanes for each algo, such as…

    - Range Bound Overbought/Oversold
    - Breakouts/Breakdowns
    - Trend Strength/Direction
    - Timed Late Entry/Exit
    - Crash Protection/Entry Override
    - Immediate Exit

    Hi Borland, I’m actually not familiar with what a racing lane is, can you point me in the right direction?

    I too tend to stack my logic in "Racing Lanes" but, sometimes I find it efficient to align groups above other groups as well as side by side.

    Some sort of drawing tool to allow something like resizing a dashed square around groups would be nice.

    And while we're on the subject, right-clicking a logic node and having an option to attach a comment would be a great help. Then, hovering your mouse over a logic node could have the comment pop up reminding us what that node or sections' purpose is. That would allow someone to hover over a sequence of nodes and easily follow the thought process or intent.
