BOVS

Optional Features

Optional Features allow BOVS diagrams to be progressively enhanced. If you choose to use an Optional Feature, you must follow all of its related rules.

We recommend that you always incorporate Annotation and Colour features unless it’s cumbersome to do so, e.g. when hand-sketching.
