How do I change the direction of a connector?

To change the direction of a connector between topics, right-click on the connector and choose Change Direction from the BigPicture pop-up menu.

Right Click on the connector, choose Change Direction

If you would like to change the direction of more than one connector at a time, <CTRL+Click> on the connectors then right-click on any of the selected connectors and choose Change Direction from the BigPicture pop-up menu.

In the example below, we have selected all three of the connectors that are pointing from the Parent Topic to the respective Children Topics. Note that in the resulting map the connectors are pointing from the Children Topics to the Parent Topic.

NOTE: This differs from simply changing the appearance of the connectors (i.e. having the arrow on one end or the other). This allows BigPicture to expand and collapse in the direction of the connectors.

Right Click on the connector, choose Change Direction
