Visio 2016 UML Sequence diagram connection points not evenly distributed


  • Hi,

    The connection points of Object Lifeline shapes and of Activation shapes are not evenly distributed (i.e. same distance between all present connectoin points).
    Furthermore the distribution of connectoins points are not aligned between Object Lifeline shapes and Activation shapes, thus making it very difficult to snap Message arrows and keeping them horisontal; and of course also difficult to achieve an even distance between the Message arrows.

    Is there any fix for this?

    Kind regards

  • Hi MatsH,

    Would you mind to share a screenshot about the issue you encountered? Alternatively, you can send us a sample file of your current scenario via GBSD TN Office Information Collection We would open your problematic file in our test environment. Please involve the thread URL in the email message for easy follow-up :)

    In Visio 2016, try to create a new UML Sequence diagram, drag Object Lifeline shapes and Activation shapes to the drawing, confirm if the glue to connection points.
