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