Can't get rid of kinks in connector lines, going nuts Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hey Omni Group -

I'm trying to make a large document where most of the connector lines between objects are totally straight. No kinks, no angles, but still attached to the shapes.

I haven't found an easy way to do this. The orthogonal setting gives most of the lines an annoying kink in the middle. Adding magnets manually can get around this, but it's a pain in the butt: both to get the line straight and to have to constantly readjust magnets if I have more than one straight line from a shape. Plus, I don't want to manually add hundreds of magnets... I just want straight lines.

Is there no easy way to say "this line is a connector, but it should always be straight if possible?"
