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.

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.
