I'm fumbling through power point trying to create a basic diagram that looks like this.

I'm in the "Smart tools" menu and I have a little block diagram chart up. The problem is I want to create boxes that have a line from the middle of one parent box to the center of a child box. In my image below the line from the center of the div to the ul is a basic example of something that doesn't seem to be easy in power point.

When I click any of the "add shape" options none of them create this. When I try and click and move the lines around it doesn't do anything.enter image description here

Powerpoint isn't great at creating charts; you essentially have to create it as a graphic. But MS provides a complete tutorial here: office.microsoft.com/en-us/powerpoint-help/… –  Debra Jun 21 '14 at 3:49
