I'm using archi 3.2 and trying to model an influence relationship. I should be able to define the strength of the influence with + or - but it's not clear to me how to do this through the UI even though the icon clearly shows the modified flow icon of a dashed line solid arrow head and a +.  Is this actually supported by archi 3.2 or am I missing something?

Hi,

in Archi 3.2 you can add the strength value in the name field in Properties.

Archi 4 improves matters where a separate field is provided in Properties.

Ok, thanks.  If using name, is there a way to move the name field away from the line a little or do I need to be creative? 

The default on a horizontal line has the characters and the relationship line colliding.

::Edit::

Found the text position to work for this.  I can have name moved to "source" or "target" rather than the default middle.
