Hi!

I'm drawing a flowchart for a project with OO Draw and it's really a lot easier than I thought it would (having only tried the horrible draw-stuff in Windows Word before).

But ofcourse I've ran into some small problems Smile

I try to draw a choice-diamond and then have 2 routes going out from it . . One "yes" and one "no". I want the yes and no text to be right at the start of the connector, near the diamond.

But when I draw the connectors and double-click on them I'm not given a choice of where the text should end up. It always end up at the middle of the connector.

A simple sketch of what I want:

<>*-------------[]
*
|
|
|
[]

But I get this:

<>------*-------[]
|
|
|
*
|
|
|
[]


Legend:
<> = choice-diamond
[] = end-point of connector
- and | = connector-lines
* = text of connector.

Is there any way to tell Draw where I want the connector text?

At the moment I work around it by typing all the text in seperate text-boxes, but then when I move around my diamond the text doesnt follow Sad

Enter the text for the connector and then, with the connector selected, click Format -> Text. Change the 'Text anchor' and 'Spacing to borders' as required.
