Default Automatically connect 2 Shapes after the middle one has been made invisible in a Layer?


I was wondering if it is possible in Visio Professional 2013 to automatically connect two shapes after the middle one in a process has been made invisible via the Layer properties.

Starting point of my problem is this, illustratively:

I have 3 shapes, ABC, all are connected in line as if it's a "process":

What I am doing then is, giving Shape B and the two arrows a layer, I make said layer not visible in the Layer properties as shown in image two (important I do not delete them):

My goal is to make Visio to see if a middle shape is missing in a process, then automatically connect the two other shapes with an arrow just like this:

I want to make that process automatically, not manually adding an arrow each time I make a shape invisible.

I was looking through various forums to see if I anybody had the same task but I wasn't able to find anything remotely related to that.

My apologies for the German language in the second picture, I translated the part which was necessary into English.
