@JustinDennahower - In the editing view, click the little Smileyface in the toolbar to add a Balsamiq Mockup.

What do you mean by "tree table"? Could you perhaps post a mockup?

comment Why did scrolling vertically became a pattern?
@dnbrv - I agree completely and is, at least in part, what I was trying to convey in my answer: Once symbols started being recorded, ease-of-use dictated the format. Ease-of-use, at least at first, being primarily a physical/body-oriented thing since clay tablets or scrolls needed to be held/manipulated, and gradually moving to an eye-comfort thing as "text" became more prevalent.

@dnbrv - Interestingly, the pictures on that page show top-to-bottom "blocks" of content (both text and pictures) that are very similar to the top-to-bottom blocks of text in "modern" paged bound books.

@JonW - Right, that's the sort of variation I tried to cover with "In western languages, the common reading direction...". There are lots of languages that are different, but the majority of text being written down seems (from my rather uncultured body of knowledge) to be LTR, TTB.

comment How can I improve the intuitivity/UX of the depicted tree structure?
It sounds like you might actually have multiple questions within this one. You may consider breaking them out on their own to simplify this one.

comment Hidden optional fields in form design
Could you perhaps add a mockup of the UI you are describing? It is a bit hard to visualize what you are talking about. You can add a mockup directly from the question editing interface, just click the Smileyface.
