Connect Matching Children

This command allows you to create multiple connectors for items of the same name, in both the source and target schemas. The settings you define in this dialog box are retained, and are applied when connecting two items, if the Auto connect child items icon ic-conn-child in the title bar is active. Clicking the icon switches between an active and inactive state. For more information, see Connecting matching children.
