Card View - Can I see which subtasks are under a parent task?

In card view is there a way to see which sub tasks are associated under a parent task?


For example, say I have a parent task as 'Create Layout' and 3 sub tasks as 'Color,' 'Font,' and 'Images,' is there a way to see how those 3 subtasks are associated with that parent tasks?


In another tool I have used the sub tasks are indented under the parent tool. If the tasks are in different columns the sub tasks are still indented but also have a 'line' on top of the sub tasks stating the parent task. 


This would be very useful so you know on the board where the sub tasks belong.

    you can only see parents being indented in grid view not card view. I think there is a parent formula which you may be able to use in a new field to contain the text of the parent .... but i am not 100% sure on that one


    I often switch between card and gridviews to get the benefit of both
