I am afraid my written english is not good enough so I want to include a text diagram of my design in the choice file. Is it a good or bad idea in general? I have done it using fixed width font, looks ok. but if I switch to a font with variable width. the diagram got screwed up. since I can not ask the examiner to use a fixed font, should I just take the diagram out? But I really like to put something up to help explain my design.
(To tell how not confident I am with my written english, here is a secret: each time I post message here, I'd check it several times befoe sending out. Still you can tell some of my postings had been edited once and once.)
I also put a diagram in my design.txt document. I am pretty sure you will be fine, if the examiner sees it distorted, they should be smart enough to open it in Notepad, or other text editor to see it lined up.
