example of new shapes

I suggest add two new objects in the draw bar: a rectangle with rounded corners and a connector with "jump" when cross other line.

This shapes can give more flexibility to Draw to draw diagrams like MS Visio.

I attached a mockup as example.

The wish for a new kind of connector is already tracked in issue 50971.

Rectangle with rounded corners already exists. For custom shapes it is in the group "Basic shapes". For primitive rectangles you can add the rectangle toolbar to the drawing bar, or you can use the "Slant and Corner Radius" tab of the "Position and Size" dialog, or you switch into point modus and drag the handle to get round corners.

Only new suggestion is the possibility to set a part of a custom shape to a different color. This is an enhancement request, no "defect".

There exists some workarounds to get similar shapes, please discuss it on mailing list or forum.
