How to change connector type for flowchart

Excel 2016
Most process flow diagrams and workflow charts use elbow connectors for connecting process stages and elements, but too many connecting lines of the same type give your chart a messy look. Fortunately, you can combine different connector types that represent semantically different transitions.

To change the connector type, it is not necessary to take several steps like to change shape (see How to change flowchart shapes in Excel), you just need to:

   1.   Select the connector you want to change:
