Linking connector and flow lines to objects

When connector and flow lines are linked to objects, operations performed on these objects will affect the lines. The following is a list of common operations and the effects each operation has on linked connector and flow lines:

Rotate, skew, or stretch connector or flow line will be redrawn to reflect the change to the object's position. Connector lines which are not locked to the connection node will jump to whichever two nodes of the objects are closest together, while connector lines which are locked to the connection line will remain attached to the same node.

Delete Duplicate connector line or flow line attached to the deleted object is also deleted.

connector or flow line linked to the object does not get duplicated. To duplicate both the object and any linked connector or flow lines, you must select the line and both of the objects it is connected to before duplicating.

Clone connector or flow line linked to the object does not get cloned. To clone both the object and any linked connector or flow lines, you must select the line and both of the objects it is connected to before cloning.

Separate link between the connector or flow line and the object is broken. Once separated, a link can only be reestablished by clicking Edit, Undo. If you exceed the maximum number of Undo levels available, you must delete and reconstruct the line.

Node edit connector line or flow line attached to the edited node are redrawn.
