Description using legal flowgraphs is often employed by legal experts for explaining law articles or for improving the efficiency of building knowledge bases. However, it was difficult to handle a legal flowgraph. Hence, we developed a flowgraph editor for drawing legal flowgraphs. To aid legal editing, this editor is equipped with graph layout able to handle any node size and hierarchical structure and display capable of displaying a large diagram on a single screen by magnifying local areas.
