Not a dia question, but I cannot see an answer on the web. I am making
a flow chart with a sequence of 4 decision points. If any of those are

the arrows coming out of these decision points all merge into one
arrow going to this re-evaluate box?

Otherwise I'd have to have 4 arrows right next to each other all going
to one small box. Just looks ugly to me, and silly as they all run
parallel for most of their existence. But in my world, where form can
trump substance, I want to be sure to follow official flow-charting

AFAIK, IBM is the place that has the official flow-charting rules, if
any.  We have not based our shapes on any rules as such, so I can't
really point you to any.
