The standard Ethernet shape in Visio actually contains 64 connecting lines, but that isn't obvious by looking at it. A few are exposed, but the secret is to look for the yellow control handles in the middle of the pipe as shown below:ethernet segment There are actually several dozen control handles on top of each other in both locations, so just keep dragging control handles off the Ethernet segment and connecting them to your devices.

Is it possible to change these connectors to multiple colors? It seems to me that any connector color change would apply to all in this shape. I want some red and some the default black.
