view all connection points for a shape RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi friends

    in Visio 2013, how to see all connection points which exist on a shape? although i have selected connection points checkmark in the view tab, they aren't shown.!

    for example i have created 5 connection points on server shape but when i hover the mouse above it, system doesn't show me any of them. i have to connected a line to my shape so that connection pint now be appeared. isn't it annoying ?

  • It is extremely annoying. When View -> Connection Points is set then connection points should be shown. The correct way to have modified how this worked would have been to have a new setting "Only show connection points when a connector is brought near the shape".
