How to Draw a Beautiful Flow Chart?
This page describes how to draw a beautiful flow chart. Let's use "secure boot" as an example.
The below picture 1 is a standard flow chart that embeds a text in a rectangle. There is a problem that if the text is too long, we must enlarge the rectangle to contain the text.
We enhances the flow chart as the below picture 2. We just draws many beautiful fixed-size circulars that don't contain any texts. We put a text outside a circular. Now we liberate the limitation of writing texts. We can describe a longer text with more details. We can group these circulars and texts as a concept that is described by another big text. We can also write comments for a circular.
