Connectors Improvements

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM provides you with new possibilities for depicting connections between objects. You can make a part of the connector invisible. it is possible to create connectors that do not have a visible connection to the objects by adding two-sided margins (Fields), or one-sided indents (Path). The part of the connector becomes invisible, but it will still be glued to connection points on objects. The ability to visually "break" the connection line is created using smart or direct connectors.

Support of Dark Mode on macOS
