Default How do I change the way a bent-connector connects to a freeform shape.

Use VBA, I made a freeform rectangle with many anchor points. This way I could have many different connectors and not at the same spots.




However, when using a bent-connector, it will only attach going right to left (see below). I would like the bent connector to attach from the direction perpendicular to the side, like a normal rectangle.


How do I change the direction the connect will attach at? I have tried modifying the xml code <a:cxn ang="0"> where it lists the points to other angles but that didn't work.


<a:cxnang = "0"> where it lists the points

Have you tried setting .adjustments(1) for the bent connector to e.g. -0.2?

I need the actual shape to have the proper connection angles so I can add multiple connectors.
