It never dawned on me that it was possible that he wasn't using
connection points. ALWAYS use connection points when you are pointing
an arrow to an object. if you don't, the first time someone asks you
to move an object, you'll spend more time moving the arrows than you
will the object, and if it's a complex drawing, you'll never get it
