Fixed mm distance for connector text
« on: January 07, 2020, 02:39:30 PM »
For a flowchart template, I would like to make a connector shape which keeps its text close to the connector start point.
So that for a decision diamond, the connectors leading out with Yes / No are always a fixed amount of 5mm from the diamond.

I've been experimenting with various fields in the shapesheet, but I can't get a consistent result. Can anyone advise please?

Been looking at
Controls.TextPostion  x,y,X Dynamics, Y Dynamics, X Behaviour etc etc
Text Transform
TxtPinX, TxtLocPinX

And Likewise with  Y elements.

txtpinx = guard(width *1 - 5mm)
txtpiny = guard( height *<say 0.3> + 2mm)
