Why would I use connector labels, and how do I create them?

Labels on connectors are optional, but you might want to use them to denote relationships in some way. BigPicture has many prebuilt labels, like "+", "-", "Yes", and "No", that you can use, or you can enter any label of your choice. You can add label to connectors via the Ribbon, Shortcut Menus, and the Outline Pane of BigPicture.

Method 1: From the Connectors drop-down list

Select one or more connectors. Then, click on the Connectors drop-down menu on the BigPicture ribbon and select the Add Label option.
