Step 3 - Linking Shapes 

Linking shapes is the basis of many diagram types and there are two ways to create links that will be redrawn and repositioned as you move and resize your created shapes.

To create a link between existing shapes select the first shape and then the add link button . The menu screen will be replaced with the "action cancel button". Click this to cancel or, to complete the link, select the shape with which you want the connection made.

To create a new shape, linked to your original first choose the type of shape you wish to create ( to pick from available templates in the shape browser or  to copy an existing shape).

 

The select the parent shape, ie the existing shape to which you want to add a connection.

Use the add connected shape buttons  to create a new linked shape in the desired direction.
