visual description for the arc

When two connectors cross (as perpendicular lines), they currently simply cross 
at a right angle. It would be very useful to have (as an option, perhaps?) the 
ability to make one connector hop over the other in the form of a short arc or little curve. 
Microsoft Visio and several CAD programs support this behavior which is 
commonly used in electrical diagrams of all sorts. See the attachment for an 
example of what I mean if it's not clear. Thank you for a fine product.

This is just a restatement of a long standing request from users

Seems valid request for enhancement.
No idea how complicated it would be to develop such a feature though.
Comment 2 Heiko Tietze 2016-04-29 13:26:43 UTC
This was a frequently requested feature in the Draw survey [1]. Arc'ed intersection is one known solution, the other is to intersect and indicate that by dimension lines, or the like.

(Setting the priority to high because of the number of requests)
