Description halmai 2008-11-05 10:43:23 UTC
I would like to connect two boxes (or whatever) with not a curve, nor with
straight connector but a broken line with several broken points. Now I can do
this only by attaching some straight connectors to each others sequentially. 

This looks fine but if I try to reposition an attaching point then OOo does not
move the two connector endpoints together but detaches them instead. 

I would like to get a new connector type to the list: 
- Collector
- Line Collector
- Straight Collector
- Curved Collector

By the Broken Line Collector I wish to start a connector line from a connection
point of an object. I would click on different points of the sheet defining
breaking points after each other. Finally I would click on a connection point of
the other object.

By moving one of these objects only the last/first segment of the broken line
would move together with the object. 

I would like to right click on one segment and choose "Add new breakpont here"
to add a new breakpoint. I would like to right click on a breakpoint and and
choose "Remove this breakpoint". (Toad Data Modeller (formerly called Case
Studio) from CharonWare ( is doing this very nice by clicking
together the Ctrl key.)
