Click Play to see how to add a connector.

To add a new connector, you select a connector from the AutoShapes menu.

When you hover over the shapes you want to connect, blue squares appear that mark the places you can attach the connector. Click one blue square on each shape for the start and end points. You'll do this in the practice.

Things to remember

  • Connectors move with shapes, so if the connector isn't straight between the shapes, you might have to make sure the shapes are aligned (Drawing toolbar, Draw menu).
  • Use arrow keys to adjust the shape position in pixel increments. Turn off Snap objects to grid (View menu, Grids and Guides) to get even a little more freedom to position the shapes.
  • Press SHIFT when you click the connector end-point to keep the angle within 15 degrees.
