Relationships

A relationship is a diagonal line joining two figures. It represents a pattern of closeness, distance, or conflict. It should not be confused with the family line, which represents a life partnership.

Relationships are created using the Relationship Tool.

The color of a relationship can be specified from the Pen Menu.

The relationship is drawn as a single solid line, unless otherwise specified from the Property Pad. Available properties are as follows:

Hostile

A hostile relationship is indicated by a jagged line.

Cut off

A severed relationship is indicated by a break in the relationship line.

Close

A close relationship is indicated by a double line.

Fused

A fused relationship is indicated by a triple line.

Abusive

An abusive relationship is indicated by a rough line. It must be directed toward one (or both) participants, as indicated by the arrows at its endpoints.

Distant

A distant relationship is indicated by a dotted line.
