Topic: single (text ?) boxes that can show hide a lot of text

I am looking for ability to enter single line captions, and connect them.
The single lines means I can get a lot of boxes on a page.
Behind the scene for each caption there would be a paragraph or two of text, that could pop up when I click (or mouse) a caption.
I have a large VB6 program, written when I was less 'brain dead', and I sometimes need to map a flow of logic, to remind myself what was the logic behind some function.

Thanks,
Rob

Thanks for taking the time to consider my problem/need
I did browse the list of recent threads, before posting.
You made me take a 2nd look at that thread.
It is possible that I could have pages for jumps.
I would have to add a spare blank page or 2, for the main flowchart, so that I don't get the jumps out of kilter.
Alternatively if this program can handle links to attachments (say JPGs or text files in a subfolder), I could mange my needs that way.

I tried a few flowcharts program for what I described in my original post, with no luck.
I am currently experimenting with Tree Notes
http://www.dextronet.com/tree-notes

One can have individual Tree Notes files, so I can have one dedicated to each flow chart.
I can use the Tree on the left to get a bit of a flow, that combined with sub Notes, and jumps to attachments, gives me a fair bit of flexibility.
I may be the first person in the Universe to try using, such a program as a 'flow chart', but here goes.

Thanks again,
Rob

hi Rob,
DD can manage links to pages as well to files of any kind ( i.e. others DD files), (\Ac:*\\*\\filename -see DD help for the particulars).
DD is ideal to manage flowcharts but it has less attitude, (for own nature), to edit text.
I don't know tree-note but, by your description, it seems similar to treepad lite, a free of charge organizer on
www.freebyte.com/.
I hope that you can find finally the best solution.
bye
Antonio

To explain the page switching the text formating code \A3 switches to page 3.
There is also the \N popup note to show more text from a single line.

For other text tree programs you could also try:
MemPad http://www.horstmuc.de/wmem.htm
or
