Style Menu Section

The Style section of the connector context menu provides the following options:

Menu Option & Function Keys

Use to

Line Style

Set the connector line style - options are Direct, Auto Routing, Custom, Bezier, Tree (Horizontal) or Tree (Vertical).

Pin End(s)

Pin the connector start and/or end to the current position on the target element. A sub-menu displays to offer the options of pinning the start point only, the end point only, or both.

Once one or both ends are pinned, a fourth option is available to unpin both ends.

Bend Line at Cursor
[Ctrl]+[Q]

Insert an anchor point on the line at the point of the cursor so you can change the shape of the line.

Suppress Line Segment

Hide a segment of a connector so that you can view a part of the diagram that it crosses.

To reverse the change, right-click on the connector and select the Show All Line Segments context menu option.

Straighten Line at Cursor
[Ctrl]+[Q]

Remove an anchor point on the line at the point of the cursor. (This is the exact opposite of Bend Line at Cursor, and [Ctrl]+[Q] toggles the connector point between the options.)

Note:

Not all menu options are present on all connector context menus. Context menus vary slightly between connector types. The type specific menu options are not always included, for example.
