How to Make a Cause and Effect or Fishbone Diagram
SmartDraw's basic template lists four main causes. You can specify your own by clicking on any of the boxes, selecting the text already there and replacing it with your own. To add more causes to your diagram, just click Add Cause in the SmartPanel to the left of your drawing area and SmartDraw will add another perfectly formatted branch. If you have the main branch selected when you add a new cause, the new cause will be added to the end of your fishbone. If you have one of the existing causes selected, the new cause will be added to the front of the fishbone, near the main problem.
