Is there a way to have an elbow connector in a figma file?

I’d like to use elbow connector(which were made possible in FigJam) in my figma design file. Does anyone know how to bring them in? And connect screens with them?

Create a connector line in a figjam file, and then copy it and paste it into your Figma design file. You can then just drag the ends to connect to frames in the same way you use it in the figjam file.

thanks for responding!

Sure, you can do this, but I’m looking for an easier way. Know what I mean?

Pasting it in, then editing it’s location, then connecting each end to a frame, takes considerable time for a large system.

I don’t think there is an easier way at the moment, although I note that it has a specific icon in the layers list - somebody has thought about connectors on the design file side. I wouldn’t be surprised if it shows up as a item that we can insert directly into designs in the comings weeks/months :crossed_fingers: :slight_smile:
