Ever since this went live it’s been a thorn in my side, how do I turn this feature off?  Thanks!

Hi @jcsacto 

You can disable automatic line connections by toggling Line Connections off in File > Page Settings > Line Settings. Clicking on this will stop lines from automatically making connections


Hope this helps - Happy to help further!!
Thank you very much and have a great one!
Warm regards

Thank you for the quick response.  I don’t see a Page Settings menu option in my file?  I see Document Settings and a Line Connections toggle but that removes too much functionality.  I still want the dots to show to connect the elements, I just don’t want it to do that thing where it tries to predict the next Shape?

Hi @jcsacto - Thanks for adding clear data points.

We don't have a dedicated setting to disable just auto-shape prediction at this time.

However we will take second opinion from Super supporters and if possible, we can add this as an idea for future enhancements.


CC: @Addie - Can you please take your time to confirm on this ?
