Connections


Overview

Connections are the arrow-lines that connect two Elements. A connection links a source element (connection start) to a target element (connection arrowhead). Connections are used to indicate the direction of the flow in a board.

{info} Only elements that are linked with connections will show during Play mode.

Creating connections

A connection can be created by clicking and dragging near the perimeter of the source element. Then the connection can be dropped anywhere on the target element. Connection source and target elements can be changed at any time by dragging and dropping the connection endpoints. Connections are always automatically placed between the two elements in order to have the shortest length possible.

Deleting connections

To delete a connection select it and press Delete or Backspace

Connection labels

A Connection may optionally have a label. A label can be used to describe a condition, a user option or anything else related to the connection.

{info} Connection labels turn to clickable options in Play mode.

Creating labels

To create a label:

  • Right click the connection and select Create label from the contextmenu.
  • Double click anywhere on the connection.

Deleting labels

Labels can be deleted by clicking on the x icon at the top right part of the label (appears on mouse hover). A label will also be deleted by removing all its content.

Changing theme

To change the color theme of a connection right click on it and select one of the available colors from the menu.
