Connnect your process steps

It's hard to go wrong using the Connector tool method described in Create your flowchart.

The key is to use right-click menu and select rotate.

The connection method described in Create your flowchart is a shape-to-shape connection. When you move shapes that are connected shape-to-shape, the connectors reposition themselves to keep the connection as direct as possible. For more precise control over where connectors attach to specific shapes, use point-to-point connections.

Shape-to-shape connections

When a connection is shape-to-shape, the ends of the connector are attached, or glued, to entire shapes rather than to specific points on each shape. If you move the shapes, the connector adjusts to keep the connection as direct as possible.

Any one-dimensional shape that can be glued between two shapes in a drawing to connect the shapes. Some master shapes are connectors. You can also use lines and other shapes you draw as connectors. A 1-D connector shape that changes its path to avoid crossing through 2-D placeable shapes that lie between the two shapes the connector connects. When you drag a Dynamic ConnectorUs endpoints, it reroutes automatically. When you select the Dynamic Connector, it displays midpoints and vertices you can drag to manually change its route from one shape to the other. A property of shapes that causes them to stay connected even when one of the shapes is moved. When you attach a connector to a shape, you are gluing the connector. If you move the shape, Visio adjust the connector as needed. If you move the connector, the glue is broken and the shapes are no longer connected.
