Deleting objects -- leave the lines

I have a diagram with an object that has attached lines. I need to replace said object with a different one. When I delete it, all of the lines attached to it delete as well. Is there a way to remove this object while leaving the lines in place?

Many thanks

Any input on this please?

If you're going to replace the object, couldn't you reconnect the lines to the new one before deleting the old one?

If for some reason you can't do that, you may be out of luck. You might think that deselecting Allow Connections From Lines for the old object before deleting it would leave the lines behind, but that doesn't work. Apparently the Allow Connections... setting applies only to making new connections; it doesn't turn off existing ones.

Or if the new shape is in a stencil, select that stencil in the stencil library, and change the type of the connected shape from the Lines & Shapes inspector ?
