How can I use quick link (or any other method) to connect 2 objects if these are not on the same screen ?

Thx

Either put them closer together or use the relationship matrix.

Another way is to zoom temporarily with pan&zoom.

And another way... if you drag a quicklink to the edge of the view, the diagram should start to scroll. You just need to know whereabouts the off-screen object is.

Where again the pan&zoom window is helpful.

Also consider important to use a physical mouse. EA is difficult to use with the embedded mouse of laptops

There is yet another method. You can drag the quick linker to an empty area of your diagram and press the Shift-key before choosing the target element type. You will then be prompted with the search dialog which allows you to search for any element in the whole model. The target element does not need to be present in any diagram.
