Here’s a Tip: Connector Modes

Did you know that the Flowchart aspect has multiple connector methods?  These help you connect objects faster based on how they are connected.

The three connector modes are:

A-B
This method lets you connect two objects by clicking on the first object and then on the second object.  Nothing is selected afterwards so you can create another connection by repeating the steps.

A-B-C
This method  also lets you connect A and B by clicking on them in order.  However, B remains selected after clicking B.  This allows you to chain objects together in sequence.  If you click C you will create a connection between B/C in addition to A/B.

A-B, A-C
This method once again lets you connect A to B by clicking on them sequentially.  However, in this case A remains selected.  If you click C you will create a connection between A/B and A/C.

Use these tools to connect flowcharts much more efficiently!
