Setting line style

Connectors are the lines that connect two shapes. When more shapes are created and more connectors appear, you may find that it is difficult to handle the straight spaghetti-like connectors. To overcome this problem, Visual Paradigm provides five connector styles to help you handle the connectors, namely Rectilinear, Oblique, Curve, Round Oblique and Round Rectilinear.

Setting connector line style

To change the line style, right click on the target connector and select Style and Formatting > Connector Style and one of five line style options from the pop-up menu.
