Arrange Connectors

Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

Connectors between elements can be moved around to create a good layout. There is a limit to how much a connector can be moved around, but generally it is very easy to find an acceptable layout. For the best layouts, use the Custom style; this enables you to add as many line points and bends as you require to create a clean and readable diagram.

Move a Connector

To move a connector, follow the steps below:

1.Click once on the connector to select it.
2.Holding the mouse button down, move the connector in the required direction.
3.To refine the movement, click and hold very near to one end of the connector; this enables a slightly different movement range.
4.To further refine the movement and range, select either a routed, direct or custom line style. Each behaves slightly differently (see Connector Styles).
