Auto connecting shapes question
« on: March 11, 2014, 01:57:27 PM »
Hi All,

I'm new to Visio 2007 and am trying to see if there is a way, similar to the auto numbering of shapes, that allows me to for example drop a number of shapes and after simply click each one in turn and they will auto join using a curved dotted line.

Can anyone help?

Unfortunately I'm not sure about 2007, but in 2010 you can hover over a shape and arrows will appear on each side, and if you click the arrow in the direction you want the connector to go, it will auto-connect it to the adjacent shape.  It uses the default connector, but there's a way to change that, I think by using themes.  I can play with that if you think this will work for you.
