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

Then add them. You can add as many connection points to any object as
you want. I've had as many as 20 connection points on an object. You
can even add connection points in the middle of a line
