    Flow chart connectors won't lock (Word 2002 SP-2)

    I'm trying to build a Flow Chart in Word. I insert my AutoShapes and the help text says, "Point to where you want to lock the connector.
    Connection sites appear as blue circles as you pass the pointer over a shape." However, no connection sites appear on my AutoShapes. I can draw the connectors, but I can't lock them to the shapes. Any ideas?

    This only seems to work if your shapes are on a drawing canvas. If you position the shapes directly on the document, the connection sites don't appear.

    I tried it and you're right, Hans. Seems the Softies are going to make us use that bloody drawing canvas whether we like it or not. Thanks *very much* for your help.

    I don't like the drawing canvas either, but what can we do... <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>
