To link between objects, click the Link icon in the Start tab to activate MAXMaps’ Link Mode. In this mode, you can’t select or move objects, but only create directional or non-directional linking lines between two objects.
Objects are linked to one another by clicking on one object and dragging the connection line to the target object while holding down the mouse button.
If you later move objects on the desktop, the connections are preserved and move with the objects.
Creating linking objects
Linking lines can be adjusted in terms of their thickness, color, label and arrow direction.
Double-clicking on a line deactivates Link Mode, deselects the line, and opens the Properties window, where you can specify the appearance of the line. If the Properties window is already open, simply click on the line to begin adjusting the look.
You can also select several lines at once while holding down the shift key ⇧ and adjust their properties.
