    I can’t get connectors to work using on my iPad.
    Connection points are supposed to turn up when you hover over a shape, but how do I hover on a touch screen?

      Hi Jorgen! You’re right – there is no hover on a touch screen. 🙂
      You can add a connector using the four blue arrows that appear when you select a shape, or drop one into the drawing area from the symbol library.
      If you want to move an existing connector to a different connection point on a shape, you can drag the end of the connector just as you would with a mouse.
