Connector Type Overlay

When Overlay Mode is enabled and one or more connection lines have been selected, a Connector Type Overlay will fade into the lower right hand corner of the Drawing Canvas.

The Connector Type Overlay application feature can be used to change the connector type for a selected conneciton line(s) within the Drawing Canvas. Select a connection line and then tap on the desired Connector Type in the overlay panel to make a change to an existing connection line.
