Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well, here we only have a limited version of latex. The full version is not usable here as the code team didn't see it necessary. It very much is but the didn't feel that way. It is much easer to just use the draw tool. On the full latex you can make lines, graph, etc with only limited codes.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0True^ although I agree it is not really worth the effort for open study, but I am interested in putting such a diagram in a document I am writing up. Is there a website that could help me with that?
