Principles

You can create off-page connectors between flow lines on different diagrams. You can create a link between any line coming out of an activity box to any line going into an activity box between any diagrams in the map or even between any diagrams across maps. The lines MUST be connected to activity boxes.

Add connectors to lines

Both lines need to have a “connector” on the end. To add a connector, select a line and right mouse click and select “Add connector” from the dropdown. The line must be attached to an activity box. 

Create a link

Select source line, right mouse click, and select “Copy link” from the dropdown. You must be in EDIT mode on diagram.

Navigate to the diagram with the target line and select it. Right mouse click and select “connect” from the dropdown. You must be in EDIT mode on the diagram. You can create more than one link on a line connector.

Common problems:

  • you are not in edit mode in the diagram
  • lines are not connected to boxes 
  • an input line can only be connected to an output line
  • the connectors are in the same diagram 

To access the line link

In VIEW mode, click on the end of the line to see the list of link(s) and select link, and you will be taken to the diagram which is connected to the link.

To delete a line link

In EDIT mode, click on the end of the line to see the list of link(s) and click on the "delete link" icon at the far right of the link title.
