Yes, QuestMap allows you to declare an argument as + (Pro) or -
(Con), or +/- (Neutral Argument)
In a particular mode (Quicklinking turned off) if a + is linked to an
Idea via a negative link, then the + is changed to a +/-
Other notations use calmer icons (you can turn these off in QMap as
well), but these ones highlight the gestalt quickly.
It's designed for very rapid capture. Obviously, if something is a
Pro to one Idea, it may be a relative Con to others, but unless you
make those links explicitly (more overhead), it remains there
displayed as a Pro.
This move to explicit Pro and Con node types is different to
'classic' IBIS (possibly it was a marketing ploy!). It's better to
load the LINKS with the semantics, leaving the nodes neutral to play
whatever role between 2 nodes that the links infer.
