A crosslink connects two unconnected topics.


To add a crosslink, first select a topic.

  • Drag the node-well  and drop it on the topic you want to connect to.
  • Or use the topic toolbar and select Crosslink to add a crosslink between topics that are located a further distance away from each other.

Crosslinks look different from hierarchical relations (see A). Sometimes they look like "normal" hierarchical relations (see B). That way you can use crosslinks to merge paths and/or make a summary.

Manually toggle the crosslink style via "Toggle crosslink style" toggle cross-link in the relation toolbar .
The crosslink's path can be adjusted as shown in the image above (A).
