Do not buy

The final generated PDF is titled "Casue and Effect" and unable to be edited. Not what I want to present out to senior leaders.

Character limits are 30 - WAY too short to reasonably create a fishbone.

The app is clunky but I was able to fumble my way through it - the first two issues are show stoppers - do not buy.
