I have gotten these nise shapes to design our network

racks on campus that glue to the rack at the bottom of

the shape. I have been unable to create any shapes that

do anything but glue at their vertical midpoint and it is

about to drive me crazy. I am surprised that more people

have not asked about this...

Please help. Thanks.

    • Most of the shapes for rack equipment are actually 1-D shapes, and their

      LocPinY has been set to 0, rather than the default Height*0.5

    • Hi,

      1. Select the Rack shape.

      2. Click the Connection Point tool .

      Note If the Connection Point tool isn't visible, click the down arrow

      next to the Connector tool, and then click the Connection Point tool.

      3. Press CTRL and click the selected shape. Add as many connection points

      as you desire.

      Note Be sure the shape is selected before you add the connection point.

      The selected shape has a green, dashed border. Connection points are

      created only for the selected shape, even if the pointer is positioned over

      a different shape.

      4. Set the Snap and Glue options

      - From the Tools Menu > Snap and Glue

      - In the Snap and Glue option, Under the section Currently Active, select

      the Snap as well as Glue

      - In the section Snap to, make sure to select Connection Points

      - In the section Glue to, make sure to select the Connection Points

      Hope this helps,

      Thanks and regards,

      Umesh V.G
