How to bind line to rectangle

I want to create some kind of flow chart with Illustrator CS3. In other programs it is possible to bind a line or arrow to a rectangle and whenever I drag the rectangle, the binded line is adapted in a way that the line is still “connected” to the rectangle. Is that possible with Illustrator CS3? Thank you!


There is no way of doing this properly in Illustrator. You’d need to use something like Visio, PowerPoint, or OpenOffice/LibreOffice Impress.

You can select the rectangle and the line’s endpoint and move them together, leaving the line’s other control points where they are though. Do this using the Direct Selection Tool (white arrow)
