Do not allow this shape to split other shapes.



Allow this shape to split other shapes.



A shape that can split other shapes must be either a 2-D shape or a 1-D placeable shape.

Automatic splitting of shapes is enabled and disabled at three different levels: application, page, and shape. By default, splitting is enabled at the application and page level; for shapes, it varies by drawing type.

To enable/disable splitting at the application level, use the Enable connector splitting setting on the General tab of the Options dialog box (Tools menu).

To enable/disable splitting on a page, see the PageShapeSplit cell.

To cause a 1-D shape to be splittable, see the ShapeSplittable cell.
