Visio 2003 and Visio 2007If you want to change the number of connections that can be glued at a connection point, follow these steps for the version of Visio that you are using:

- On the Tools menu, click Options.
- Click the Advanced tab.
- Click to select the Put all settings in Windows registry check box.
- Click OK.
- Exit Visio.
- Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
- Locate and then click the following registry subkey that applies to your version of Visio:
- Right-click SnapToShapeComplexity, and then click Modify.
- In the Value data box, type a value for the number of connections that you want to be able to glue to a connection point, and then click OK.
Note You can configure a value between 50 and 1000 for the SnapToShapeComplexity registry entry. After you install Visio 2003 SP2, the default value for the SnapToShapeComplexity registry entry is 100. This default value should be sufficient for most complex drawings. If you configure a value that is greater than 300 for the SnapToShapeComplexity registry entry, system performance may be affected when a drawing has 300 connection points.
