Arrange Connectors

Connectors between two elements can be moved around the element borders 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 line style; this enables you to add as many line points and bends as you require to create a clean and readable diagram.
