Formatting shapes, relationships and text is easy in Designer

 

Formatting Shapes – Style

Line Jumps

Line jumps increase the readability of diagrams, when relationships are crossing each other.

To use line jumps, there are 2 options:

  1. Right click the modeling canvas (paper) and select all relationships. Select a line jump type in the style tab.
  2. Select the relationship(s) to apply the line jump to. Make sure, that the selected relationships are on-top (front) of the crossed relationship(s).
