I’m okay with this sounding dumb. But drawing a line that points back to the same activity where it came from isn’t an easy thing to do in K2 Studio.
… unless you know the trick.
Here’s how to do it:
Draw an activity on the K2 Studio canvas. We’ll call this the first activity.
Draw a second activity on the canvas above the first.
Draw a line from the first activity up toward the second. The important thing here is to draw the line in an upward motion, because by default, the line will attach to the bottom of the first activity and to the top of the second activity.
Grab the pointer of the line at the top of the second activity and drag it down to the top of the first activity. If the line appears to let go of the bottom of the first activity, keep dragging toward the middle of the activity until you see line both above and below the activity.
You may discard the second activity now.
Grab the bottom of the line on the underside of the first activity, and slowly drag it toward the closer edge (see “1” in the figure below). You should see the line move around the corner. Keep slowly dragging the bottom of the line upwards (“2”), so the line resembles a square, then release the mouse button.
Look at what you just did!
Notice in Step 3 that I took care to draw the line close to the left end of the activity, and that the finished product was a line that bends around the left side. Where you choose to draw the line along that horizontal axis will affect your outcome. If you want your completed line to bend around the right side, consider drawing your line closer to the right end.
It’s very important at Step 6 to only grab the bottom of the line going forward. Grabbing the top will wreck it and you’ll have to basically start over.
