line hop in libre draw

Uh… you really need this. As others have mentioned, this is the only reason I still have to use visio.

I saw the other request for this was closed.

There is an enhancement request fdo#54990.

A workaround while we wait for the enhancement:

  • Draw the line (menu Shape - Line, or button Line in the Drawing toolbar).
  • Insert two point, one at each side of the crossed line (menu Point, or F8, then button Insert Point and click in the line).
  • Curve the new segment (select both points, press button Corner Point, and drag the central handler of each point away from the line; holding down Alt while dragging cancel the active snap options).

A more elegant option:

  1. create a circle (menu Shape - Ellipse, and drag holding Shift), convert it To Curve (menu Shape - Convert),
  2. delete part of it (F8, drag to select and delete),
  3. convert both chord points to Cornet Point
  4. add a central point to the chord,
  5. select it and press Split Curve to open it,
  6. separate the two center point.
