I need 3 textbox on a single connector line object, instead of one RRS feed

  • Question

  • Folks please do not suggest to group 2 more textboxes with a connector, because that doesn't have yellow handles and it's not the same thing as the textbox that comes by defaultwith the connector object because you can't ungroup the connector and that default text box that it comes with, I am looking for the same thing.

    I managed to just add another yellow handle, but I couldn't add one more text box, please tell me how it's done, thanks

    According to the blog: Where's my text control handle?, there are some ways to create control handle. You can follow it and have a check. There is a tempate file of Visio drawing to add text control handle mentioned in the blog.

  • I can not see the images. 

    A shape can have only one text block, if you want more then the shape has to be a group shape. So, when several text blocks are grouped together, Visio creates a new shape (the group shape) that controls the member shapes. To add the yellow control handles, that should be added to the group shape and references to the control handles should be added to the member shapes. Since these will be cross shape references they should look like

    Sheet.5!Control.name.x
