Formatting connectors

Connectors are lines that join two shapes. Connectors stem from a glue point of the shape. Refer to Chapter 5 (Creating Graphic Objects) for a description of the usage of connectors.

Connector properties can be accessed and modified in two ways:

  • Manual formatting: right-click on the connector line and select Connector in the pop up menu.

  • Style-based formatting: select one of the available graphics styles or create a new one as discussed in “Using graphics styles to format graphics” on page 117.

Both methods open the Connector dialog (shown in Figure 98) where you can set the style of the connectors. Choose between Standard (the default), Line, Straight, and Curved connector. Whenever multiple connectors overlap, use the Line skew section of the dialog to distance the lines. It is possible to customize the distance between 4 different lines.

In the Line spacing section of the dialog, set the horizontal and vertical space between the connector and the object at each end of the connector.
