||This task shows you
how to place on/off sheet
connectors in a document.
connectors are used when it is not practical to visually display all of a
line on one sheet, and a second sheet has to be used, or when design
considerations require interrupting display of the line even if it is all
on one sheet. In such cases, on/off sheet connectors are placed where the
display of the line ends, and at the point where it is displayed again, to
show that the visual display was interrupted and the two halves should be
regarded as one continuous line.
To learn how to build a graphical
representation of a connector, see Building a Graphic in the Electrical
Connectivity Diagrams User's Guide.

The publication contains information about the connector. When you link
the on/off sheet connector to another connector, that information will also
be stored in the publications of both connectors. The publication does not
identify the document, only the connector.
Before this change, information about the connector (including about the
document which contains it) was stored in a different way and no
publications were created.
