Hi, Jay,

The first example is the perfect hit:

> Key:
> |-A node that is not the last node at its level
>  -A node that is the last node at its level
> | Continuation of an ancestor level
> Root
> |-Dir1
> | |-File11
> |  -File12
> |-Dir2
> | |-File21
> | |-File22
> | |-Dir21
> | | |-File211
> | | -File212
> |  -Dir22
> |   -File221
>  -Dir3

> In the first case, you need either a for-each or a recursive template to 
> generate all the "continuation" images and space them properly. 

Thats what I'm searching a solution for ...

Customer wishes *sigh*

You are right! I maybe had another tool in mind, TreeSize or such.
