Demo: Working with connectors

Office demo Watch the demoDemo icon

Imagine you’ve spent hours working on a flowchart for new authors detailing the process a manuscript goes through from submission to publication at your company. The next day, you find out that the process has been changed: roles have been added and certain steps have been combined or switched. You’re going to need to update your chart to reflect these changes.

In the past, this would have required painstakingly moving the shapes and the lines connecting them separately. Not only does this create additional work, but invariably, time is spent nudging lines back into their proper location relative to shapes.

By using connectors in Visio 2003 — special lines that stay “glued” to shapes — you can move the shapes and the lines at once, quickly and easily updating your flowchart.

Watch this demo to learn how to work with connectors in Visio.
