    Default View requested diagrams on Youtube

    On different occasions I have been asked on this forum to supply a Reed-Kellogg diagram for some sentence.
    I am always glad to do that, but there is no very convenient way that I know of to diagram while using a keyboard.
    The Reed-Kellogg diagramming system works beautifully and easily on a blackboard. It occurred to me that I could more easily make a very short video of the making of the diagram requested and then post it on my Youtube channel, giving the link here. That would also give me a chance to show various options.

    Does anybody see any problem with this?

    I am thinking of beginning with "All's well that ends well". Or "The gate swung shut".

    No problem at all- is there no software that does this easily? What about stuff like SenDraw? Reed-Kellog are actually fairly new to me- I went through school and taught for a couple of decades before I came across them.

    None that I know of. I can do it -- diagram online using a keyboard, but it is awkward and difficult.
    On a chalkboard it is easy, quick, and fun.
    I'll try it and see what happens.
    Thanks.

    R-K as such never took off in the UK. Even in the USA it had gone out of fashion before your time.
