Can lines only be drawn from the left or right side of topics?

For mind maps, I can see how I can move objects to custom locations. However, it appears that the connecting lines will only go to the right or left side of the object, rather than connect on top. Is there a way to do that?

    Hey @DanH 👋,

    The actual lines between topics only attach on the right or left of each topic. However, you can also add connections. These are extra connecting lines which can be added to any of the topic's four sides.

    I hope this helps!

    Thanks @Emily . That is disappointing… just for aesthetic reasons. But we'll make it work. Thanks.
