Create Connectors

The connector list does not actually display until you release the mouse button over the target element; however, a dotted line shows where the connector would be at any point, and a hatched outline displays within the border of an element as you move the cursor onto it - this helps you identify where the connector should connector to, if there are many closely-arranged elements, Parts, Ports or other extensions.

The list contains the most appropriate, commonly-used types of connector for the source and target element types. If you want to use a different type of connector, select the appropriate Toolbox page, click on the required connector and then on the source element, and drag across to the target element.


  • You can quickly create a Notelink to attach a Note or Constraint to a connector, simply by dragging the Quick Linker arrow on the Note element onto the connector
