  4. Click to start the connector at a predefined connect point or keypoint.

    • The direction in which you move from the start point determines the angle at which the connector is drawn.

    • If the object itself is rotated, the takeoff angle is adjusted appropriately so that the connector is perpendicular to the object.

    • If you press the ALT key while drawing a connector, the connector attaches to a connect point at any angle.

  5. Pass the pointer over the second target object.

  6. Click to end the connector at a predefined connect point or keypoint.
