Make connectors curved, angled, or straight

  1. Right-click the connector.

  2. Click Right-Angle Connector, Straight Connector, or Curved Connector.

Note: You cannot add handles to straight or right-angle connectors, but you can use the Pencil tool Button image to add handles to curved connectors.

Tips: To make the default connector straight or curved:

  • In Visio 2010, 2013, or 2016, on the Design tab, click Page Setup, click the Layout and Routing tab, and then in the Appearance list, click Straight or Curved.

  • In Visio 2007, on the File menu, click Page Setup, click the Layout and Routing tab, and then in the Appearance list, click Straight or Curved.
