Framework: RB037 – rb037_0204_v01
2 - Primary or Horizontal Divisions
4 - Secondary or Vertical Divisions
Part of series: RB037 Ribbon Flow 037 – Stacked Arrows
Series Keywords: horizontal flow, stacked horizontal flow, vertical sequencing, top down, bottom up, top-down, bottom-up
This is a nice variation on the other ribbon flows, particularly RB029. They are each suited for specific uses:
- RB029 is for use as an alternative to a horizontal flow. Horizontal flows do not utilized the slide real estate very well when there is no subordinate text. Therefore, a spread-out, diagonal flow is a much better layout.
- RB037 is for use when there is subordinate text or other content on the slide. The subordinate text can be placed on the right of each stacked segment. This layout takes up much less space.
The series example shows how this layout might be used to present a series of steps. This layout is also very well suited as an alternative to a bulleted/numbered list. There are four variations, each with two to six flow segments:
- V01: bottom-to-top flow with large arrow – a good choice when you want the arrow to contain an icon, graphic, or text
- V02: bottom to top with small arrow – a good choice when you want the arrow to simply indicate flow
- V03: top-to-bottom flow with large arrow – a good choice when you want the arrow to contain an icon, graphic, or text
- V04: top-to-bottom with small arrow – a good choice when you want the arrow to simply indicate flow.
