Description haui 2004-10-20 11:15:42 UTC
OpenOffice supports a fixed set of connectors that can be used to link objects
together. Connectors automatically change, if one of its connected objects is
moved around. To create special diagrams one usually needs a specialized set of
connectors. For an example see issue 13455 that requests a special form of
connector for database designs. Since it is impractical to request a new feature
for each new sort of diagrams (e.g. UML diagrams), it would be better to support
user-defined connectors.

I do not yet have a definite idea, how to realize (and edit) user-defined
connectors, but I mean it's worth thinking about. Maybe, it could be feasible to
construct connectors by grouping connectors with other connectors and
non-connector objects.

This issue is also related to issue 7726 and issue 8132.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on

I think this issue should be solved together with issue 10547 and therefore be closed as duplicate. Issue 10547 has already 206 votes.
