If two lines must cross in an engineering diagram, SmartDraw uses a "bridge" (also known as a "line hop") to show that the lines do not intersect. You can define what this line hop looks like in Line Hops menu accessible for relevant diagram types from their respective SmartPanel.
- You can show or hide line hops
- You can change the style of line hops from round to square.
- You can change the size of the line hop.
- You can also turn line hops on or off just for a selected line using the "This Line" section.
