# How do I add connectors between shapes in Visio Pro 2016?

I think I'm missing something quite basic about Visio. I can't add connectors between shapes. I can create connections that appear to be attached to shapes, but when I move the shape, the connector endpoints stay where they were.

I have found instructions in the app's Help, which seem to correspond to this Microsoft support page. Where that page says I should position the Connector tool over the center of the first shape until a green box appears, I never see a green box. I can't get dynamic or point connections to work.

• The gif in the section  To connect shapes by using the Connector tool  shows it perfectly. The 'Green flash' has to appear in order that they connected. Did you try the connector tool as well? And it also did not work? – h0ch5tr4355 Oct 28 '15 at 7:04
