In Visio 2003, is there a way to align connectors among shapes? I am specifically attempting to correct the issue shown in the image below. When using connectors to imply hierarchy, I do not really wish to see each individual connector, only enough to demonstrate the hierarchy.

Any suggestions? I am currently manually dragging the connectors into place, but this is a tedious process. The image below show the problem on the left, and the desired outcome on the right:

I got this from Visio help:

multi-tree shape

From Blocks, drag a tree shape onto the drawing page. If you want two branches, use a Double-tree shape.

If you want two or more branches, use a Multi-tree shape. Drag the yellow control handle on the trunk to the right to create more branches.
