Connection Lines - Jump Over

In Visio if I have a connection line that crosses another connection line, it automatically adds a little ‘jump’ to show the line direction.

Is this feature available in Miro?

Hi @Stephen Carp! Could you upload a screenshot? Not sure I understand what you mean by “jump”.

This is a ‘jump’ in the Visio Software.
You can see one connecting line jumps over another.
In Miro this is would just show as two lines crossing, making it slightly harder to read

@Stephen Carp Ah, I see. Thanks for the screenshot! As you said, there are nothing like that in Miro. But you could create a Wish List idea, if there isn't one already? 🙂

@Henrik Ståhl -

This would be an awesome enhancement because whenever I teach a class were my learners are building a schedule network diagram, I joke with them about “not crossing the proton streams” when their dependency links criss-cross.

Line jumps are absolutely essential in all sorts of diagrams which show directional flow, such as systems architecture diagrams. I’m a new Miro user and I don’t know how to see/contribute to wish lists. How do we get this on the upcoming feature list?

Hi Phil,

The item is in the Wish List.

You can vote for it there.
