Pinned topic Sequence Flow connecting multiple symbol types

‏2012-11-11T12:45:21Z |
I would like to depict a new symbol similar to the "sequence flow" in "Business Process" diagrams. This new symbol should connect to and from multiple symbol types. I don't mean it will connect more than two symbols at the same time, but it should be possible to be connected to different type of symbols on the diagram.

How can I do this on the USRPROPS?

    Try something like this:

    RENAME SYMBOL "User 1" to "My Symbol"
    RENAME DEFINITION "User 1" to "My Definition"

    SYMBOL "My Symbol"
    {
    DEPICT LIKE "Sequence Flow" IN "Business Process"
    ASSIGN To "My Diagram"
    }

      Actually that was the first thing I tried. This works, but it has the following issues:

      - I cannot limit what connects to what (it will connect ANY symbol to ANY other symbol) which is not what I want.
      - You can actually draw a flow line on the model WITHOUT even having it connected to symbols !!
