Referencing connected objects from a line using formulas


Using formulas/custom data fields on a line, how do I reference the shapes that the line connects to? I cant seem to use the "CONNECTED", "UPSTREAM" OR "DOWNSTREAM" commands as they only refer to "other shapes connected via a line". I am trying to format the line depending of whether it is connected to a shape or not, but I can't seem detect this using a formula.

Hi Johan, 

Thanks for reaching out. Those formulas do not currently work with lines. A work-around is to apply the formulas to the shapes themselves, or put a small shape on the line that connects the shapes together. 

We are always looking for ways to improve our product. Can you please fill out a feature request form with your request? Thanks!
