Whatever method you use there are nearly always conventions, supporting ideas or simply shortcuts. Recently was I shown an IBIS cheat sheet created with Compendium (a no-longer maintained IBIS software). I don’t like the looks of the Compendium very much. But I liked the content and decided to recreate the cheat sheet.
These diagrams are created with Vithanco using the IBIS Domain.
The 7 “root” questions are simply 7 kinds of questions. See below a generic diagram that uses these 7.
I hope these diagrams make us much sense to you as they do to me. If you do have any questions, please bring them forward. And clearly, let me know if you have similar interesting items.
