    Connector Lines (2002)

    There is an Excel template on Microsoft's site (under the general template listing) that has a time line and uses connectors with text boxes.
    I'm going crazy trying to find out how a connector line is actually NOT connected to the text box, yet still moves with it when either the line or the box is dragged.
    There doesn't seem to be any grouping (as ungroup is not available).

    If you are referring to the Microsoft Office Templates: Timeline.

    It does not have a textbox and a connector. It is an autoshape. It is a "Line Callout 1". The line and rectangle are not grouped, they are both part of the same autoshape.

    Son of a gun..so it is...here I thought it was something really clever with a connector (since the info provided w/the template says "connector"). Thanks.

    It is just terminology. The "callouts" have an implicit "connector" as part of the shape...
