Linking nodes

Other than the traditional branch connector that represents a generation of idea, you can link related ideas and concepts by using a link connector. There is no exact definition about how two nodes can said to be related. It is up to the designer whether to link the nodes or not. As long as you want to represent that two nodes and related, and the relationship is meaningful, you can add a link between them.

To link nodes:

  1. Move the mouse cursor over the source node. Press on any of the resources: Link, To Link, From Link. To and From links are directed relationship, which shows an arrow to indicate the flow from source to target node.

    NOTE: Unlike traditional resource icons, the Link resources must be released on an existing node.
    Releasing on diagram will not result in creating a new node.
  3. Optionally enter the name of link. Press Enter to confirm editing.
