Avoiding the "Select input and output" message

Technote (FAQ)


How do I avoid receiving the "Select input and output" message when I connect objects such as tasks, forks, and decisions?


You receive the following message when you join objects such as tasks, forks, and decisions, and the inputs or outputs are not visible in the diagram.


To avoid receiving this message, the inputs and outputs must be visible in the diagram. Otherwise, the Process editor guesses which input and output to connect to.

1. In the Process editor, click the Change Diagram Setting button in the toolbar.
2. In the Change Diagram Settings window, select Inputs and outputs.
3. Connect the input and output.
