Step 4th: Point the mouse pointer at the first flowchart graphic (you don't have to select it), and there will be 4 red connection points around the shape. The second flowchart graphic also appears as a red connection point when the mouse pointer points to one of the connection points and then presses the left mouse button to drag the arrow to the second flowchart graphic. Navigate to one of the connection points and release the left key to complete the connection of the two flowchart shapes, as shown in Figure 4.
