It is possible to use other flow styles apart from the default "elbow" flow with 90 degree turns. A single flow's appearance can be defined in the Flow Graphical Properties dialog accessible by right-clicking on the flow. Model-wide settings can be defined in the Modeling Options dialog accessible from the Model tab of the ribbon.
Exercise 68: Change a flow style.

|2. Draw two Activity process steps and connect them with a Control flow.|
|3. Move one of the Activity process steps so that the flow has a turn in it.|
|4. Right-click on the flow and select Graphical Properties... from the popup menu.|
|5. Remove the selection from the Use default connector style check box.|
|6. Change the line style by selecting Straight from the Arrow Style drop-down list.|
|7. Click OK. The flow should now go straight from the first Activity to the second Activity, without any turns in it.|
