Under Consideration

Drawing Tool Needed

A more efficient way is needed in order to draw message flows between black box pools and process pools...or from Message End events to the target of the message. Dragging connectors onto the page and manually connecting each end is not ideal and time consuming.

Adding a connector option to the pie menu would work perfectly....Bonitasoft's tool does this well.

Thanks!

Dear Bryant,

Thank you for your interest in Bizagi and sent feedback.

Indeed you may use the pie menu to automatically connect shapes.

This is a great feature we do plan to improve (as you mention it, consider additional options), and in the meantime all you need to do to quickly use message flows is to:

1. From the source shape (i.e the message end event), use the pie menu to click on any shape and drag it to your existing target shape.

Note that you must drop this when the target shape highlights to indicate that you do not wish to include a new shape.

2. At this point it doesn't really matter if the pie menu's shape corresponds to the target one.

Bizagi will automatically use (and validate according to the BPMN 2.0 standard specification)

the proper connector.
