One option to consider is to create your org chart or flow chart as
html rather than a graphic.

Here's one I built for our division a couple of years ago...


It has a table for the basic structure, but uses a hierarchy of <h>
levels and linearizes pretty well I think. I'm convinced the same
thing could be done with a series of nested lists and CSS. (one of
these days. ;^)

Anyhow, depending on your specific organization or "flow", it might
be something to try.
