Join Jason Osder for an in-depth discussion in this video Connect objects with lines, part of OmniGraffle 6 Essential Training.
…Along with shapes, lines are the other…major element used in most OmniGraffle diagrams.…Let's see how they work.…Like with all the tools, a single click on the…Line tool will get us one use of the Line tool.…But a second click will get us persistent use.…So, I now have persistent use, and that means, whatever I click,…you can see, when I hover over these shapes, they highlight in blue.…And then, when I select the first one, I start to draw…a line, until I click the next shape, and they are now connected.…
If I switch back to the Selection tool, I see not only can I move one shape, and…the line will stay attached to it, I can…also select the line and we see some additional details.…In particular, I've got a red dot and a green dot.…And that always means the starting and ending point.…And, we'll see in a little bit, when…we start to style lines, that they are directional.…So, I can add an arrow going in one direction,…not the other direction, based on the starting and ending point.…And they are, in turn, based on the way I originally made the line.…
