Add default options for Responses to Objections and Questions

The reasons and objections structure is useful for mapping out arguments but is incomplete without being able to add responses to objections (which can be distinct from reasons for a position) or questions that don't amount to an objection since you have a response to them (but which might be common enough to merit attention in discussing an argument).

It would be great if there was a way to add Responses and Questions in a similar way to how reasons and objections are added, with different colour coding (perhaps blue for responses and purple for questions of similar).

The best I can currently do is adding a disconnected node and then manually adding a link, but this tends to break the layout and is not as intuitive as being able to add responses and questions would seem to me.

    I'd say that a response to an objection is nothing else than an objection to the objection : after all, you are saying that this objection is not righ, which is levelling an objection against it. Changing the color would still be useful.

    Questions, though, would be very useful.
