Drawing a custom link

Custom links are made up of segments. They are often used to show that communication occurs between two symbols.


To draw a custom link:

1.Select the symbol where you want the link to begin.

2.Click a link handle, then drag to create the first segment of the link.

3.Press Control and Shift to end the first segment and begin a new segment.



You don't need to hold down the Control and Shift keys. Just press and release when you want to change direction.

5.To complete the link, click a connection point on the symbol where you want the link to end.


Tip: You can add new segments to a link you've already drawn. Select the link, then hold down Control and Shift and click the link where you want to make the segment. Drag the segment.
