What do you connect to on a shape if you want a point-to-point connection?

A green plus sign.

A blue x.

A red "G".

How can you tell when you've made a shape-to-shape connection?

The connector endpoints become red rectangles with an x at the begin point and a plus sign (+) at the end point.

The entire connector turns red.

The connector endpoints look like solid red rectangles, without an x or plus sign (+).

When would you use a shape-to-shape connection instead of a point-to-point connection?
